If there is one thing that is certain in the fashion world, it is that you can always count on the boys behind Australian label Ksubi to create something off-beat and yet totally must-have. Ksubi’s Summer 2010 eyewear collection, entitled Book Club, is a madcap 13-piece line of unisex frames that project a high-fashion aesthetic with a contemporary twist.
While each frame is evocative of a classic silhouette, Ksubi has given the line its signature touch with unpolished, raw frames and innovative printed designs. The Skeleton sunglasses are a feminine approach to the classic wayfarer shape and have been updated with bold boning in black, red and tortoiseshell. The Bellatrix is a Chanel-inspired round frame that has been given a fresh twist with frames in purple haze and clear matte. Pay particular attention to the Lyra frame; the 50s-inspired cat-eye silhouette is a major trend this summer and Ksubi’s neon-leopard print brings it into the now.
Prices for Ksubi’s Book Club Collection range from AU $289 to AU $329 (around US $240 – $270). You can purchase the collection at Ksubi stores in Sydney, Melbourne and New York, or online at retailers like Asos.com and Farfetch.com. Learn more at KsubiEyewear.com.
