International Stüssy Tribe Gathering, Bali, 28–29 October

We’re collaborating with iconic streetwear brand Stüssy to host a rare International Stüssy Tribe Gathering on 28–29 October in the tropical setting of Potato Head Beach Club.

 

With live DJ performances, a pop-up merchandise store, indigo dye workshops and a mini skate ramp installation on Seminyak beach, the gathering is set to be one of the most culturally significant events of the year.

 

Born in coastal California in the late ’80s, Stüssy has grown into a globally recognised brand, known for redefining the look and ideology of casual-wear.

 

The label’s story began when Shawn Stüssy, a surfer who shaped boards for friends in Laguna Beach, started to produce T-shirts to sell along with the surfboards. His surname, written in a graffiti style, went on to become the company’s iconic logo.

 

Soon, Stüssy’s clothing was being worn by a network of international creatives from a range of underground subcultures, a group who were later to become known as ‘The International Stüssy Tribe’.  

 

Tokyo’s Sound Museum Vision was the venue for the first Tribe Gathering in 1991 and we’re excited to host the latest – a two-day party with international selectors, fashion collabs and art workshops on 28–29 October.

 

MUSIC

A stellar line-up of game-changing IST DJs and creatives will provide the soundtrack for both days, including Nike’s mastermind, Fraser Cooke; DJ and Radio 1 presenter, Benji B; Alex Baby, the drummer and percussionist for 23 Skidoo; and American rapper Theophilus London.

 

Creative clothing, club and radio collective, No Vacancy Inn, will be presenting a special pop-up radio show at Studio Eksotika – from 2pm on Sunday.

FASHION

Our pop-up merchandise store is back, with special edition Stüssy x Potato Head rayon shirts designed in our signature Bali-inspired print; selected Stüssy Holiday 2017 pieces, and IST Bali T-shirts hand-dyed locally with natural indigo. Proceeds from the IST Stüssy Bali shirts will go directly to the Mount Agung evacuee relief fund.

 

ART

We’re laying on indigo dye workshops where you can learn how to dip-dye your own T-shirt with natural blue dye. Open for our guests and IST members on Sunday from noon.

 

SKATE 

A mini spine skate ramp will be specially installed by Motion Skatepark on Petitenget beach. It’s open for our Bali skate community and IST’s pro-skaters to use over the whole weekend.

 

 

Join the tribe on 28–29 October, from 4pm until late.
