STÜSSY x 032c PANTHER LONGSLEEVE Worldwide Release

On the occasion of today’s July 14th release of the Stüssy x 032c Panther Longsleeve, photographer and director Jonas Lindstroem and 032c’s fashion editor Marc Goehring paid a visit to Karl Friedrich Schinkel’s panther statue in front of the Schauspielhaus in Berlin. When we began collaborating with Stüssy on the shirt, we wondered what Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem “The Panther” would look like in the brand’s beachy 80s font. Pairing the pioneer of California streetwear with the OG of Austro-Hungarian Modernism was simply irresistible. Written in Stüssy’s classic hand-style on the back of the Panther Longsleeve, Rilke’s 1902 poem about images, bodies, and captivity appears like a message-in-a-bottle to the digital age. See the story here and find out about the stockists below: 

The Stüssy x 032c Panther Longsleeve is available on July 14th at STÜSSY, both online and in their chapter stores, SSENSE online, or at one of our stockists near you: ANCHORET Beijing, THE BROKEN ARM Paris, CIVILIST Berlin, GALLERIA Seoul, GR8 Tokyo, KM20 Moscow, SELFRIDGES London, and SLAM JAM Milano.

The Panther
In Jardin des Plantes, Paris

His vision, from the constantly passing bars,
has grown so weary that it cannot hold
anything else. It seems to him there are
a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world.

As he paces in cramped circles, over and over,
the movement of his powerful soft strides
is like a ritual dance around a center
in which a mighty will stands paralyzed.

Only at times, the curtain of the pupils
lifts, quietly … An image enters in,
rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles,
plunges into the heart and is gone.

– Rainer Maria Rilke

    Under the music moniker Blood Orange, Devonté Hynes has spent the last decade softening the strident ego of mainstream pop with the wistful jazz and new wave tones, as well as musings on identity, belonging, and vulnerability, on albums such as Cupid Deluxe or Negro Swan. Singer, songwriter, producer, and director Hynes, who goes by Dev, brings his solitary sensibility to his other projects, too – whether scoring films and fashion shows, collaboration with visual artists, or, more recently, starring as the face of a capsule collaboration between adidas and OAMC, a menswear label founded by Luke Meier and Arnaud Faeh in 2013.More
