The return of Ksubi continues to reinvent its roots and this time they have dabbled back into the graffiti and self-repaired punk vibe. You can see new styles from overalls, graffiti for women and classic sun-bleached for men, to leather pants and even jackets emblazoned with flames. Along with the new denim, they have knits that are distressed and given the ransom note treatment with the graphics.
This is definitely a collection that had me smiling because the soul of the brand is there, but it’s fresh from the new underlying California vibe. I definitely get more hopeful to see what they will continue to come out with and how much more they will push the boundaries. I can’t wait to see who we catch out in the safety pinned jackets and those printed overalls. You can check out the new collection below. Which are your favorite pieces from the line?
White jeans are a staple for the warmer months and the new Jane Skinny in Deep White by Ksubi are a great update from the normally classic clean style with distressed detailing. It takes the classic mostly preppy piece to casual territory that made me choose them this week to style for my ‘Weekend Look.’
As I prefer easier weekends, I wanted to go for something that was very casual. So I paired the jeans with these denim Golden Goose sneakers because I find the contrast of the blue and worn in details of them to be a nice complement against the stark wash of the jeans. I then chose a shirt that was more on the boxier side to add to the ease sense and the Are You Am I Lish t shirt is just that. It is perfect to carry on the California skate vibe that also came to mind when putting this together.
Adding more fuel to the fire of casualness, a backpack by Rebecca Minkoff for its classic cut and color that just works so well against the mostly all white look. Then a Cali look isn’t done without some sunglasses, especially with the excessive sun we have been having. These OAMC sunglasses are a great cut to go along with the look, whether you choose to stroll the streets of the city or walk the boardwalk. So, how many of you are looking to take it easy this weekend and wear a look like this?
As of recently, trends never die. They just hibernate for a bit and overalls are the exception to this. As the weather is warming up and festival season still happening, I am sure we will be seeing them reemerge again in different takes, shorts in particular.
Ksubi has always been one of the brands that had different takes on the overalls since they first started. Remember those skinny styles? Well they didn’t leave it there, they are taking the style on again in a shorter version just in time for the warmer weather. In two different washes, the style is ready for you to pair with your favorite tanks for the endless pool parties or just a casual day around town. Which one are you excited to try?

Ksubi is back in full force and with their new Spring/Summer 2015 collection, aptly named, Bring Back Life, it is like they never went away. The collection is full of signatures by the brand, like dark and washed denim along with their knit pieces that range from distressed to classic.
Though full of signatures, there is a slight new vibe that comes off very invigorating. There is a fresh and easiness to the new collection that embodies their new home in Venice, California without losing the edge that they are known for. Seeing this makes me even more excited to see what is to come from them. You can check out the new look book below and start shopping the label again at SHOPBOP.
