AD ASTRA

AD ASTRA (to the stars) the motto of the true believer. ksubi’s 2011 eyewear collection is based on paranoid alien obsessed fanatics and their anarchistic lab nerd style.

We make eyewear discoveries from the 1950’s to 1990’s. Rimless lenses, cat eye shapes and outlined frames in translucent, teal, burgundy, green and yellow. The Desert DMT print as seen in ksubi’s spring summer collection and the radiant blues and smoky greys of ksubi’s high summer are replicated in key sunglass and optical frames.

Ksubi Premiers The Return of Colored Denim with a Short Film

Tim Gauthier

Cult Australian fashion label Ksubi, toast the long awaited return of their coloured denim range, with a short film directed by Australian director Daniel Askill. kolors is a fume-fuelled, slow-motion battle between three colour-clad models and a trio of ‘80s muscle cars.

With the ksubi team securing the very last sets of limited edition coloured tyres by Kumho available in Australia they then enlisted Askill and his team at Collider to fuse the vivid smoke with the spectral denim range. Models Bambi Northwood-Blythe, Cisco Gorrow and Heidi Harrington-Johnson act as modern-day matadors to the rumbling Ford’s that attempts to hunt them down while the girls soar above the cars to an operatic soundtrack.

Shot next to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport in barren industrial wasteland that car fanatics converge on after dark and with a Phantom camera, Askill captures each and every denim movement and smoke billow at 1500 frames per second.

Ksubi was credited with creating the coloured denim trend back in 2004. The coloured denim will land in store world wide on May 5th 2011 with maximalised kolor dyes in white, blue, orange, green, black, purple, red, plum, aged blue, aged green, aged yellow, aged black and aged pink, sold back with your favourite unisex Ksubi classic t-shirt prints.

Ksubi kolors are available in our most popular fits for men in the ‘Chitch’ and ‘Van Winkle’ and women’s ‘Super Spray On,’ Super Skinny’ and ‘Super Skinny’ short.
