Waving His Rights: Shawn Stussy, another of Orange County's leading surf- and active-wear designers, was featured in a full-page article in the Sept. 22 issue of Women's Wear Daily. Stussy, who begged out of a New York trip to be interviewed in person by the trendy trade journal, seems to have his priorities in order. "The waves are too good right now," Stussy told WWD. "I'll be surfing tonight, but you can leave a message on my machine if you have any more questions."

While hip-hop and grunge fashion ideas have slowly captivated America's youth, Irvine-based designers Shawn Stussy and Mossimo Giannulli have remained true to their clean and classic sportswear roots. The formula has worked--to the tune of $25 million in sales this year for Stussy and $23 million for Mossimo. Now, each is parlaying his popularity into several new business arenas, from sunglasses to shoes.

Miles Siggens has gotten used to offers from style-conscious Londoners wanting to buy the shirt right off his back. They also want his jacket, his pants and his hat. But the 27-year-old distributor of Stussy Inc. in the United Kingdom refuses, no matter how attractive the price. "There's a growing fan club of Stussy and these fans are trying to buy back (discontinued) items for their collections," Siggens said.

Mention the word "diverters" to Mossimo Giannulli, and the Irvine-based fashion designer grows noticeably agitated. After calling them a few choice names, he calms down just a little: "They're people who see an opportunity when a label's hot to make extra dough," he says. "It's so unethical." His sentiments are shared by another Orange County designer, Shawn Stussy, as well as the people at Quiksilver, Vans and other manufacturers who have been stymied by diverters.

If anyone can bridge the gap between beach and street fashion, it is probably Shawn Stussy. An Orange County home boy, he considers himself equally comfortable on the streets of Huntington Beach or Los Angeles, London or Tokyo--cities where his clothes are making waves. Fans collect his T-shirts because of their graphics (this season he's into Jamaican flags) and their script-like logos. He makes the neon-colored beach shorts so many kids are wearing this summer. Knit shirts and long, pleated shorts in khaki or dark colors round out his casual collection.
