Over the past few months Stussy have made a number of collaborative releases in order to celebrate their 30th anniversary. Their latest collaboration sees them team up with Greensleeves Records who are also incidentally celebrating their 35th anniversary this year, giving the partnership that something extra in terms of history and meaning.
Greensleeves Records was founded in Isleworth in 1975 by Chris Cracknell and Chris Sedgwick. The label is particularly famous for specialising in reggae and dancehall, with releases from artists such as Scientists, Eek-A-Mouse, Mad Cobra, Yellowman and Shabba Ranks all featuring in the catalogue of the label.
This special edition collection of t-shirts takes the labels previous releases and celebrates them on the platform of the classic fitting Stussy tee. Their are a number of different graphics from album cover releases by artists that featured on the label, which highlight both the work that the label has done in the past as well as Stussy's very own work in providing top quality and innovative tees for the past 30 years. In particular I think the Prince Jammy and Wayne Smith tees stand out, with the great graphics accompanying the Stussy fitted tee really nicely.
