Last week, Australian fashion/streetwear label Ksubi launched Lest We Regret, the first in a series of concept pop-up stores in Melbourne. The pop-up store is located at Don’t Come (the Schwipe gallery in Melbourne city) and has taken over half of the gallery space for 12 weeks. The store will stock the latest from the Ksubi range, along with one-off and exclusive pieces. The concept stores are anticipated to launch nationally, with Brisbane and Sydney soon to follow – and there are whispers the project will go global. Each new location will feature an original interior concept designed by the Ksubi collective to reject accepted retail practices and to make a statement on the impermanence of retail. Lest We Regret features 120 glass jars, suspended from the ceiling with wire, containing shredded Quarterly Economic Activity Survey’s from the Australian Bureau of Statistics – a not so subtle nod to the woeful economic climate…and kind of ironic given the price tag on Ksubi threads.
