Stüssy & Oakley Are About to Drop the Shades of the Summer

Stüssy & Oakley Are About to Drop the Shades of the Summer

Stüssy and Oakley are teaming up for a sunglasses collab set to drop this weekend. Per teasers posted to Stüssy’s Instagram, the link-up will riff on Oakley’s Eye Jacket frames and arrive in two colorways, Black and Sand.

The Eye Jacket Frames were released back in the ’90s, a time when Oakley’s sports shades were everywhere — no small part in thanks to Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman. The brand made a massive comeback into the fashion space in 2018, collaborating with Louis Vuitton, Maison Margiela, and Heron Preston, just to name a few.

In the years that followed, the brand has dropped a number of great collabs — Stüssy’s upcoming release follows shortly after ours, which dropped on the Highsnobiety store recently.

“Oakley has been the go-to sports-sunglass brand for decades now. I remember how cool it felt to get a pair of their famous Eye Jacket (kind of a Matrix-sports vibe) as a teenager and I remember even more how uncool it felt a few years later to wear small glasses when Oakley’s bigger frames took over,” said Highsnobiety creative director Herbert Hofmann. “They always seem to be on-trend — an inspiration for the fashion industry.”

Oakley x Stüssy will arrive on Friday, April 2 via Stüssy’s website, Chapter locations, and Dover Street Market. However, if these shades aren’t exactly what you’re looking for, check out Highsnobiety’s Oakley Sutro Lite collab below.
