We at Stylesight are BIG fans of Ksubi– they get the balance right between fashion-forward and fearless design with ultra-wearability that makes us want every piece.
Their F/W 12 collection (S/S 13 in Australia) featured at last week’s Sydney Fashion Week and looked amazing. Named Bad Sports, it channels 90s activewear styling with a dash of surf and skate culture reworked in faded and bleached-out denim – nodding to Ksubi’s heritage but re-interpreting it for 2013.
High fashion met high performance in the unisex collection with baggy track bottoms, puffa jackets and zip-through hoodies and parkas in total denim, creating a whole new attitude for denim-on-denim styling. Also key were the surf-inspired hibiscus prints in upsized scale, creating a bold allover motif for both men and women.
The show was styled by Christine Centenera, who brought her effortless street style cool to each look.
