Surfer Beard

George Gorrow, cofounder of Ksubi (and, well, awesome), shows off a pair of his sunglasses to the Selby. He.Is.Down.Right.Dreamy. Period. I also kind of love that him and his partner in crime, Dan Single, both Aussie, released live rats onto a runway at one of their fashion shows.

From an interview on TimeOut Sydney:
George: My greatest inspiration comes from two places: The first is friendships and family. The second is travelling. I have many inspirational friends whose vigour pushes boundaries their particular fields. You get so much out of anyone who's passionate about what they do and it's infectious. I'll bounce art off a musician, fashion off a movie director. Everyone has a different perspective and take on things. I love examining life from different angles, and the feeling like I need to pull my socks up.

Culture shocks are just that! They shock you into new ways of thinking and living. I recently went to Morocco and became infatuated by the ancient Buriburi men. They lived in the mountains separating Morocco from the Sahara - the border of Africa but there is no African influence. I found the most amazing decorative dresses and handcrafted artefacts. That just took me to another place.
