A Bathing Ape Shark Hoody 10th Anniversary | The Style Raconteur

A BATHING APE is celebrating the 10th anniversary of one of its most iconic pieces — the indispensable Shark Hoodie — with a capsule collection featuring a quartet of reissued hoodies. Built with signature full zip detailing that extends to the hood, and adorned with 10th anniversary branding on the left front pocket, the revamped pieces include an all-white and all-black edition with reflective print. All four come in special packaging and feature Swarovski crystals for a distinctively luxe aesthetic. The collection, rounded out by a quartet of matching tees, (surely just to call this an anniversary collection) is scheduled to launch through BAPE’s online store on October 25

Stussy IST Varsity Jacket

stussy-2014-fall-winter-ist-varsity-jacket-1Streetwear staple brand Stussy has gone back to its roots and returns this season with a new iteration of its ”IST Varsity Jacket.” In a retro-inspired aesthetic, the hooded wool garment features contrasting varsity stripes on the bottom and cuffs, while leather sleeves are also set in a different color to bring out the nostalgic feel even further. The jacket then adorns a large “INTERNATIONAL Stussy TRIBE” motif on the rear, with more brand patchworks on the front chest area. Finishing touches include branded buttons, leather-covered pockets and a quilted interior. The jacket was one of the earliest unifying representations of Stussy’s global influence as select International Stussy Tribe members were gifted with jackets as a token to the movement. Available in a black and white colorway as well as a grey and white option, the jacket will soon be available at Stussy Chapter Stores in Japan.
