Arguably the first streetwear brand to deliver lifestyle accessories to its varied customer base, Stussy has released its fair share of home goods and furnishings over the years. Given the brand’s propensity for conspicuous branding, it’s no wonder that Stussy’s “rag mats” are seeing multiple releases this season. 1980 — the year Stussy was founded — graces a circular style that borrows California’s interstate iconography, as well as a classic rectangular mat featuring white on blue lettering.

Following the release of his extremely popular Underground Hero: Love to Hate Me, Tokyo-based cinematographer Luke Huxham presents his latest short film titled Black Business: Modern Day Yakuza. The cinematic interview focuses on the individuals in Japan who are known for conducting in “Black Business,” the Yakuza, international business men who use knowledge, money, powers of persuasions and their influence in the government to help secure lucrative international black business deals.
I had the opportunity to speak with Huxham about the project and ask him if there have ever been any issues — any blacklash — following the release of any of his most recent projects, because I would assume not everyone is happy about him delving deeper into the Yakuza culture. “As far as backlash goes I have not really encountered too much as of yet, or at least that I know about,” Huxham said. “With this new film we will just have to play it by ear I guess.” He continued, “Working on these personal projects can sometimes affect how others perceive me from a professional point of view, maybe some potential clients in Japan may not like these types of projects but you have to take the good with the bad. I have a very unhealthy obsession with these types of topics, the beauty in the bad, and I just love filming people and building atmospheres around them.”
