Nexus VII and Stussy have teamed up for a capsule collection entitled ‘Rainy Dayz’. Previous collaborations between the two labels have resulted in some awesome outerwear and this joint venture follows in that pedigree. This gore-tex shell is a pullover-style combined with a fishtail design. Other key design elements include sleeve snap button pocket, waist snap button pockets and contrast braided drawstrings. The piece comes in purple and black but it appears the black version has already completely sold out online.

Since I’ve known about Nexus VII I’ve always appreciated the outerwear pieces they’ve put out. In particular I felt like their gore-tex shells were some of the best out. I was looking forward to seeing what the Japanese label had in-store for Fall/Winter 2013 and they didn’t disappoint. What I like about lookbook is that the photography and styling both have a vintage feel, but the individual pieces definitely enter more experimental territory. A fantastic Air Force inspired leather jacket is in the mix alongside some ill sherpa lined shearlings. More technical pieces are here too including layered weighted shirts, down pieces and vests. Be sure to click through and see the rest.
Put your proxy to work these items will be dropping on their webshop very soon.
