Ksubi and P.E Nation have collaborated on a limited-edition denim collection for women, dropping today (October 6), modelled by Shanina Shaik and photographed in Sydney.
The collection comprises 16 pieces and combines both brands’ æsthetics, blending feminine style with a streetwear sensibility. Details include Ksubi’s signature 4 × 4 embroidered crosses and P.E Nation’s gold hardware. The custom symbols combines both brands’ ones.
Of the 16, there are 10 denim pieces, oversized jersey Ts, shearling outerwear, and a cut-out cargo dress. The two companies point to the bike short and printed cropped long-sleeve T as being the highlights.
P.E Nation co-founders Pip Edwards and Claire Tregoning said, ‘As an Australian brand that is driven by the celebration of attitude and expression, we were excited to join forces, as we share this mindset and ambition. Denim and activewear underpin the modern woman’s wardrobe. It’s an exciting proposition for two established, Australian brands to come together to take that message to the world.’
Ksubi CEO Craig King added, ‘Ksubi has always been a brand that embraces change. We have seen the worlds of denim, streetwear and activewear cross over in recent times and there’s no better example of this than what Pip and Claire have done with P.E Nation. The opportunity to combine the respective DNAs of two great Australian brands at this time to produce something fresh for our markets was too good to turn down.’
