Ksubi Kustom Kompetition

The good folks over the General Pants Co Bubble are holding a kick ass competition to design your very own Ksubi Kustom vest. If you win they will make it… You know what, thats all well and good but when I read this “you will be able to experience the design process first hand and collaborate with the Kustom team to produce your piece.” I nearly blew my proverbial load. I have had a massive style crush on Ksubi for as long as I can remember, actually since they were frickin Tsubi! It’s like an old school love affair and the idea of like getting to hang out and collaborate with them is about the best thing I could  imagine. The Ksubi Kustom studio is located behind their Paddington store and looks like this..

I would be open to selling my first born to hang out and create here. Anyway I had a crack at a couple of designs, basically you have to use three of five elements; studding, painting, patches, bleaching or shredding. They said they wanted lots of colour so my first design is a pretty colourful, My Little Pony inspired vest; it has a rad pink hood, butter soft yellow leather across the back and décolletage, my little pony patches on the pockets and back, and some sexy studding! The second design references the current Ksubi Collection. The Crushed Crome pattern on the back and shoulders is from the current collection as are the American Flags. The Cross Dollar is pretty well known Ksubi sign and that has been painted on to the front breast. There are some studs about the place and lastly there is a pretty gangster All Seeing Eye patch across the back of the vest.

Let me know what you think, you can check them out here and here and if you want to check out some of the other designs or submit your own go here!

WTF! Have I been living under a rock? Seriously how have I not ever discovered Polyvore before? I’ve known about it for a while but I’ve never really bothered to take a proper look at it.Shame on me! It is awesomeness rapped up in a blanket of fricking epic coolness. I have been having sooo much fun with it over the weekend! I fear that it could be addictive, considering i’ve already been on it for like 5 hours today I feel that its a legitmit concern!

Check out this ‘set’ insipred by Bambi Northwood-Blyth, Erin Wasson and Sky Ferreira. Its a little bit rock n roll, a little bit grunge and everything I am lusting after style wise right now!

PS: Follow me on Polyvore or link me to yours I need more inspiring people to follow!
