The Original Boardshort Company Quiksilver is celebrating the release of the second capsule of Saturn, a Y2K-inspired collection.
In addition to the on-trend capsule of boardshorts, tees, long- sleeves and fleece, Quiksilver released a short film back in December featuring brand athletes Kael Walsh, Rolo Montes and Al Cleland Jr. on location in Indonesia, the Australian South Coast and Western Australia. The fast-paced film recounts the athletes’ four-month journey chasing waves in the Pacific and Indian oceans.
The Saturn Collection is inspired by the look and feel of the early 2000s. Quiksilver athletes Walsh, Montes and Cleland Jr. grew up watching the defining surf films of the era and have channelled the progression and aggression of the 2000s into a fresh new capsule.
The apparel collection includes signature Y2K looks including cargo-short cuts, a longer, 20-inch boardshort silhouette and classic graphic elements, relying heavily on primary colours and featuring bold contrast stitching.
“Saturn is our Y2K-inspired collection designed in collaboration with some of our key athletes that are influenced by this golden era of the core.
It offers a modern take on classic cut & sew panel boardshorts that go past the knee and heavier apparel materials in primary colours. Tops and bottoms feature spacious fits authentic to the style of the era.
Key design details of the collection include contrast stitching and piping, small centre-front graphics & logos in embroidery and high-density screen prints.
The name “Saturn” comes from our original logo design from this era which features an oval ring around the mountain and wave logo.”Tom Purbrick, Quiksilver Global Design Director
