Last Friday, Los Angeles was graced by the presence and talents of graffiti heavy-hitter Eric Haze for the opening reception of his collaboration with Stussy. Both being iconic figures in street culture, the much anticipated team up came into fruition showcasing over 20 original Stussy peices done up with Haze’s signature style, a video installation, mural, and not to mention the glass case filled with Stussy x Haze merchandise dropping this Spring/Summer. Merchandise included keychains, bags, and their shoe collaboration with Pro-Keds. Also available was a limited edition t-shirt printed in celebration of the event.
The show as a whole was a success with a full house of music, media and both local and international visitors. I never realized how much of an impact Stussy has on Japanese culture until I noticed the number of Japanese fans in attendance at the opening. A plus to the art displays were the substantial amounts of the much enjoyed complimentary mixed drinks provided by Belvedere along with music supplied by DJ Cut Chemist, all of which did just the trick to making the opening reception a party not worth missing.
If you are in or around Los Angeles, today will be the last day the show will be open to the public at the Known Gallery. Be sure to check it out.
