Rapper A$AP TyY and Australian denim and streetwear brand KSUBI have combined their creative forces to merge fashion, music, and motorsports – unveiling an exclusive limited-edition capsule collection timed perfectly with the drop of A$AP TyY’s highly awaited debut EP.
“I had the idea of doing moto-style denim and jersey for a while. If you know your denim, you know Ksubi. There’s no denying how influential Ksubi has been on hip-hop culture, and its ties to A$AP, so it only made sense to bring this collection to life with the help of both of our teams,” says A$AP TyY in a statement.
The nine-piece collection encompasses denim, moto-jerseys, a t-shirt, a hoodie, and accessories. With TyY heavily involved in the conception and design of the capsule, the spirit of the collaboration extends into the supporting content creation for the EP, with KSUBI and TyY partnering on creative direction for the music video of TyY’s EP track ‘Purge’.
Denim pieces have been transformed with a moto-inspired aesthetic, featuring oil stain effects that add a rugged charm. Gravel splatter artwork adorns the back of the garments, further enhancing the moto vibe. Additionally, repair-style embroidery on the crotch area creates a worn-in feel, reminiscent of authentic motorsport apparel.
The Ksubi and A$AP TyY collection will be available at Ksubi stores in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago and London, as well as ksubi.com, and selected retailers globally.
