Last night, global streetwear brand Ksubi announced its capsule collection in collaboration with platinum chart-topping artist, Trippie Redd, during an explosive presentation to kickstart New York Fashion Week.
The 21 piece collection was showcased exclusively to New York’s fashion elite and music royalty who attended the presentation at renowned NYC venue, The Georgia Room. Key guests included musicians Jim Jones, DD Osama, Sugarhill Ddot, Lola Brooke, actor Michael Rainey Jr, New York Knicks NBA player Miles McBride and social media personality Denzel Dion.
Guests enjoyed drinks from Belaire Champagne, Lobos 1707 Tequila, ALB Vodka and Path Water, with sounds by Odalys and DJ duo Angel and Dren. Attendees were also treated to unreleased music by Trippie Redd. The Ksubi x Trippie Redd collection was modeled by New York’s next generation of fashion trailblazers including Giovanna Ramos, Cjay Syre, Dimitry Dino and Elyanna Banes Sanchez.
Having firmly established his position as a leading figure amongst artists emerging from the soundcloud rap scene, Trippie Redd has captivated fans worldwide with his versatile ability to seamlessly blend genres within the realms of Hip-Hop. In turn, Trippie Redd has cemented himself as a significant cultural figure whose influence has naturally transcended from music to style when fusing streetwear and high fashion.
Ksubi and Trippie first joined forces during the campaign to launch the Ksubi Juice Wrld collaboration in 2022. Trippie’s ascent as an artist closely mirrors Ksubi’s outsider DNA, achieved in part by traversing the path less traveled, marking this collab as a clear-cut fusion of worlds.
Trippie Redd said of the partnership: “When it comes to both music and fashion, I never like to be put in a box. I express myself fully without any boundaries which is why it made sense to link up with Ksubi. I wanted the collection to feel authentically me, and I’m excited to bring new designs to Ksubi that aren’t typically what they’ve done before and to bring that vision to life.”
Ksubi CEO Craig King said: “I feel very few artists possess the creativity and imagination of Trippie Redd. As such, it was a great privilege for Ksubi to work and collaborate with him to create this unique collection for his fans and ours.”
Combining Ksubi’s luxe-rebellious spirit with the enigmatic persona of Trippie Redd, the collection offers an unapologetic celebration of creative outsiders. Drawing upon the renowned punk-inspired aesthetic rooted in both brand and rapper, iconic Ksubi styles are reimagined under the lens of the rapper’s distinctive style throughout. The collection encompasses luxury pieces adorned with custom developed artwork, experimental design techniques, Trippie’s distinct iconography and a bespoke collaborative devil box cross logo.
The Ksubi x Trippie Redd collection will be available this March at Ksubi.com, Ksubi stores in New York, Los Angeles, Miami, Chicago, London and Sydney as well as select retailer partners including Neiman Marcus.
