Dries Van Noten and Stüssy, an unlikely pair, are collaborating — at least according to A$AP Nast’s Instagram Stories.

The rapper and style icon took to Instagram to tease a treasure trove of items merging Stüssy’s iconic graphics with Dries’ love of all things flora and fauna. Examples: a cap boasts an eight-ball patch embroidered with petals and leaves; denim separates airbrushed with infinity sighs and flames are accessorized with mushroom charms.

For (seeming) proof that the collaboration is legit, just peep the oversized hoodie bearing a co-branded Dries Van Noten x Stüssy crest.

Neither brands have confirmed the project, though A$AP Nast tagged their official Instagram pages on his story.

The partnership is a major move for Dries Van Noten, which rarely collaborates with other brands. Back in 2019, the Belgian label — helmed by Mr. Dries Van Noten himself, a member of the Antwerp Six — unveiled a surprise collaboration with Christian Lacroix at Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2020.

Stüssy, however, is no stranger to buzzy team-ups. The king of California cool — whose eight-ball fleece recently went viral on TikTok — has worked with a long list of brands including Converse, Dior, Nike, and most recently, Our Legacy and Denim Tears. There’s more! Other recent highlights: Stüssy x Birkenstock, Stüssy x Tekla, and Stüssy x BAPE.

Stüssy x Dries Van Noten? Another one for the books.
