30. MBFWA SS2012: Ksubi
The trucker style hats are back as the boys from Bondi bring with them quadruple amounts of double denim. From the shoes to the neckerchiefs which in some ways might be fitting of a painter, it's the small things that provide a point of difference from the layered denim bomber to the colour of each concoction which are all the same blue.
Hawaiian print on print usually fitting of retirees wearing Panama hats are in any case now becoming. Paired with cool kicks and modelled by the likes of Jerome Alarie and Rachel Rutt this is Bondi Beach wear fitting of designers George Garrow and Dan Single's band of friends from the stylish Christine Centenera to the motley skater crew.
With fashion so futile it can't be easy keeping up with cool, but Ksubi do it effortlessly and consistently, bucking trends and carving out new ones. Were not talking about a revolution here. Ksubi's collection get's no more detailed, intricate or complex in it's storytelling. It's just easy clothing with that little bit of Bondi edge.
