Stussy Deluxe (an extension of the Stussy brand which focuses upon more classic designs) present their fall/winter 2010 collection in an adventurous yet beautiful lookbook. The decision to call in acclaimed photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulus is one which had made this lookbook so special. The balance between the quality of photography and the exposure is perfect, displaying Marcopoulus' exceptional photographic talents as well as aptly presenting the styles incorporated in Stussy Deluxe's fall/winter 2010 collection. The lookbook shows delivery of high quality in both areas, with the stunning landscapes and brilliant portrait shots from Marcopoulus acting as the perfect layout to present Stussy Deluxe's impressive line.
The line represents designs that are created with the seasonal weather in mind, with a worker wear ethic to a fair amount of the line. The design of shirts in the line looks to be of great quality, with great variety in both durable checkered shirts and well as plain buttoned down styles. The fit of the shirts looks really nice from photos, with the shirts hanging off the body slightly and sleeves tailored to the perfect length. The jackets, although I don't believe they have as much as an impact as the shirts, are impressive. Thick and well-fitted, the design of the jackets you can see below is fantastic. The long fit, two chest pockets and toggles combine to create a lovely design, one which is only enhanced by the well chosen colourways (beige/orange & navy/blue). Denim is also a strong point in this fall/winter collection. With a nice selection of straight and slim fits, darker denim dominates the lookbook images, with the highlight for me being the turned-up denim jeans isolated in an image nearing the bottom of the lookbook.
A fantastic concept. Stussy Deluxe have really delivered in terms of their fall/winter 2010 collection as well as the stylistics of their lookbook thanks to the ingenious idea of having the extremely talented Ari Marcopoulus shoot the collection. There are some real strong points to the collection, especially the design of the shirts which I would recommend looking into further. The collection should be available from Stussy's website sooner rather than later, which you can check out by clicking here.
