Get lost in Stüssy and No Vacancy Inn’s new collection
Co-founders Acyde, Tremaine Emory and Brock Korsan team up with the streetwear supremo for a collaborative collection that references iconic '80s pop-culture moments.
Travel back to 2015. A time when dancefloors were socially not-distanced, holidays didn’t mean a two-week quarantine and Tremaine “Denim Tears” Emory, Ade “Acyde” Odunlami and Brock Korsan met somewhere between New York, Miami and London.
While the exact details are hazy, one thing was clear: the trio were all nuts about partying, music, radio and good style. Banding together through their love of nightlife, they formed a unique cultural viewpoint that many are itching to be a part of.
Enter: No Vacancy Inn, a transatlantic creative platform and free-form agency. So what does that mean exactly? One week they’re working on a T‑shirt collection for Dover Street Market, the next they’re curating exhibitions for Art Basel or hosting club nights attended by the likes of A$AP Mob and Virgil Abloh. It’s all in a days work.
The collective are the pinnacle of cool, which is why streetwear supremo Stüssy has hit them up for a collaborative, streamlined collection.
The capsule takes its cues from ’80s movies like Weekend at Bernies and John Lennon’s infamous, Lost Weekend affair in 1973. These nostalgic references play out as a genre-bending collection that includes a luxe navy velvet suit (inspired by the original lounge suit designed for off-duty gentlemen), boxy logo sweats in neutral tones and a knitted jumper with tie-dye sleeves. Nice.
Modelled by rapper Asap Nast and shot by photographer Aidan Cullen, the campaign places the collection in its rightful home: a sun-soaked, Spanish-style LA house, equipped with decks, shelves teaming with vinyls and roof-top fountains.

Stüssy & No Vacancy Inn is available Friday, September 25th at 10am PST and 5pm GMT.
