In the last ten years, NIKE has collaborated with Stussy on many different projects and to celebrate a decade together they have combined forces to produce a collaborative version of the NSW Destroyer jacket.
Nike Sportswear modernizes traditional silhouettes with unabashed perfection. The Stussy Destroyer is no exception. NSW has found fabrics, laminates, and bonding methods that could brave nasty weather but still look fresh.
Stussy’s Creative Director Paul Mittleman got his hands on Nike Sportswear’s version and picked up the phone: “Some friends at Nike sent me one of the Destroyer jackets a while back and I loved the way Nike had taken the jacket and brought some of their innovation and technological skills to it. They’d taken it to the next level. As we’ve had a long-term relationship with each other, I got on the phone with the guys and suggested that we get together to create a NSW x Stussy Destroyer. It went from there really.”
The jackets ability to combine luxury, sophistication, innovation and sport are its signature qualities. A double-layered waterproof and thermo-insulated body deliver maximum warmth whilst delivering one of the lightest versions of its kind.
The collaboration also sees two limited edition Nike Sportswear Stussy All Court-Mid’s coming in black and white with a snakeskin-inspired swoosh and three tees celebrating ten years of working together. Fraser Cooke of Nike, Mittleman’s “partner-in-crime” on the collaboration said “Both brands have been part of popular culture for the last three decades and even before we began to collaborate the original Stussy tribe were adopting NIKE shoes as part of their look. So for both brands this has been a really natural collaboration”
