Shawn Stussy and Dior continue their collaboration, now they have decided to celebrate the artist and designer’s roots as a surfer with the latest drop. The collaborative surfboard has been designed in the “Gun” shape, known for its aerodynamic silhouette and features a special fin to create a smoother and easier ride.
The board comes in a colour palette of grey and “Ice Blue” on a white base, with one side featuring the characteristic “Dior” collage from the men’s autumn 2020 collection. With regard to the surfboard, Shawn Stussy explained his desire to create something “that would be similar to dancing in the ocean,” while Dior’s artistic director Kim Jones explained the origins of the collaboration: “Shawn Stussy is one of my greatest heroes. He started out as a surfer, making his own boards and painting his name on them. It was very natural for me to ask him to work on Dior’s first surfboard.”
Limited to only 100 units, each surfboard needs 72 hours of work to be produced. Currently, there is no news about the release date.
