This new collaboration includes five colorways made from all-natural dyes that have been ethically harvested. The shoes are prepared in tannins, and then slowly treated in special dyes extracted from plants with “skin-soothing medicinal properties.”
The five colorways will be available in limited quantities on Stüssy’s website on January 29, 1 p.m. EST.
Each is a reflection of Stüssy’s five world tour cities:
New York – the violet colorway, is made using Brazilwood, Quebracho Rojo and Hibiscus, to mention a few ingredients
Los Angeles – Weld, Fustic, Osage Orange and Turmeric
Tokyo – Organic Indigofera Tinctoria
London – Organic Indigofera Tinctoria, Fustic, and Weld
Paris – Chestnut Bark, Myrobalan and Iron.
Stüssy emphasizes that each pair is carefully hand-dyed by Lookout & Wonderland in Los Angeles, California, “an art practice based in plant color, medicine and fiber.”
