a twist on twenty8twelve

Twenty8Twelve has taken a quirky twist for Spring/Summer 2013; its new designers are taking the brand in a new, edgier direction.  With recurring elements which included micro-dots, ruching and sorbet colours, the look at Twenty8Twelve is full of sweet summer dresses, micro short-shorts and loose-fit trousers.  They've also greatly expanded their denim range to include items with super-fine, laser-etched patterns, all in that soft worn-in feeling.

ksubi: AD/BC men's

If you men out there caught our post yesterday on ksubi's Summer 2013 AD/BC women's look book and felt a touch jealous, then you'll be happy to hear that an equally amazing set of shots was created for the AD/BC men's line, too.  Featuring similar baroque inspirations as the women's line, these menswear pieces were designed with ksubi's signature laid-back attitude and unwavering sense of cool.  All our favourite prints from the women's line were done up in men's styles, too so, for all you matchy-matchy couples out there, there's never been a better time to coordinate your outfits!  We swear, in these clothes, you couldn't ever look anything less than achingly cool.

ksubi: AD/BC women's

ksubi's Summer 2013 collection was all about baroque gone bad.  Taking inspiration from gilded elements you'd see in 17th century Parisien palaces, ksubi put their own street-spin on these classical motifs.  With a campaign and look book styled by street style superstar and Vogue Australia fashion editor, Christine Centenera, shot on location in - you guessed it - Paris, each piece is highly-covetable and embodies ksubi's trademark urban, edgy style.  Take a look at the campaign images below and lust away, ladies!
