Ksubi Reinterprets the Classics for Its Summer 2013 Eyewear Range

Balmy nights and the fact that salads are becoming swiftly more appetising than Portuguese chicken burgers… Well, here’s another great thing about the rapid onset of summer.

Ksubi has released the lookbook for its Summer 2012/2013 eyewear range, and it’s a UV protective doozy. The range picks up where its latest clothing collection left off, but these frames are equally suited to triple-tone Canadian jumpsuits as they are a pair of Havianas and the sands of Bondi Beach. Heavy metal accents and printed acetates adorn 17 unisex styles, with the best of the bunch being double-bar aviators with cool mesh inserts and thickened up, modernised cat eyes with contrasting arms.

Both the optical and sun varieties are captured in this slick lookbook shot by Sydney’s Jedd Cooney. Greasy hair and athletic outfits in palm-print and signature washed out Ksubi denim complement the futuristic eyewear, and make us rethink the relevance of puffy spaceman turtlenecks worn in the summertime.

The range is currently available on Ksubi’s website. Buy sooner rather than later and you can justify the purchase by wearing them all summer long, right?
