The scene was set at Ksubi’s buzzing event space, KStudio, where a constellation of cultural influencers from the worlds of sports, fashion, and music converged to raise the roof for the Aussie sports star. The timing couldn’t have been better, as the festivities kicked off just before the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Japan later this month.
Hosted by none other than ARIA-nominated Gumbaynggirr rapper Tasman Keith, the night was primed for a sensational lineup of music that had the crowd on their feet. Renowned Australian DJs Sollyy, Yemi Sul, and Crybaby curated beats that kept the energy soaring. But that wasn’t all – culinary delights from local hotspot Butter sated appetites, while libations from Don Julio 1942, Tiger Beer, Munda Wines, and Pals kept the glasses raised.
In attendance, we spotted fellow Australian Boomers teammate and Dallas Mavericks NBA player Josh Green, designer Pip Edwards, singers Connie Mitchell of Sneaky Sound System and Cat & Calmell, AFL player Lachie Whitfield, socialites Nadia Fairfax, Tahnee Cook and Ollie Skelton and CADA radio host FlexMami and rapper B Wise dressed in Ksubi’s Fall 23 collection.
A toast was made to the convergence of two icons – Patty Mills and Ksubi. The Australian streetwear brand, born and bred in Sydney, has taken the fashion world by storm, particularly with its distinctive denim. Ksubi’s fingerprints are all over the NBA’s fashion runway, the tunnel, and they’ve been the creative minds behind Mills’ tunnel looks throughout the 2022/2023 season.
The night wasn’t just a casual throwdown; it marked the beginning of a long-term partnership between Patty Mills and Ksubi, with the promise of more collaborations to come. Check out the gallery above for the highlights:
