Stüssy Celebrates Bob Marley's Most Iconic Albums In New Summer Collection

The Bob Marley estate has always been up to task, securing a sizeable cut away from the bootleg industry. s Bob Marley have been depoliticized like Mao and Che Guevara before him, all gesturing a yellow book call for revolution. Streetwear company Stüssy had other things in mind when they rolled out a collection graphic tees borrowing his graphic image, all without drawing too closely upon an inextricable political message.

The graphics include artwork from several Bob Marley’s tour posters, artwork, merch etc. A few the t-shirts make reference to his 1978 record Kaya, as well as his iconic imprint Tuff Gong. All images have been provided by the artists.

The longer tees look the part concert merch, with less emphasis on the illusion tie dye and more a historical record each event. Much Bob Marley’s tour posters and cover art preceded an era sensory. Stüssy considered Marley’s simplified reggae aesthetic when they put together the patchwork design.

Streetwear have a way overexploiting a simple idea, something for which Stüssy is not guilty doing. Naysayers will never-the-less remark redundancy posed by Bob Marley imaging, but that in itself is an issue semantics.
