New York based ‘underwearist’ Ken Wroy has been making waves in the underwear scene by designing playful boxers around the pulsating vibe of the city. He has also managed to revolutionize the fit and feel of his pieces. For his summer ’13 Wroy went to the streets for his inspiration. Drawing in the commotion of the city and the graffiti strewn across town, this collection is full of colorful and bold graphics. The summer collection has six different styles each with their own identity. Every pair comes in a midrise or lowrise option and is made with a 95% cotton and 5% elastane fabric blend for the most comfort as you’re traversing through the busy crowds and dodging crazy cabbies.
To start your day with a positive mood, try Jump Start My Day ($26), which is an energetic and psychedelic mulit-colored printed knit with a navy waistband. The citrus colors in the piece will really get your energy levels flowing as you down that first cup of coffee. Or Aater a grueling workout, slip on Just Chillakalakin ($24) to kick back and take it easy for the rest of the day. This pair is a printed knit boxer trunk with a light blue and purple ringlet pattern. Still psychedelic but not as trippy as Jump Start My Day.
For the wild side in you, rock God Made Me Funky! ($22) which features a mirrored silhouette of a yellow giraffe against a blue and white tie-dyed printed knit. We don’t know if we’ll ever see a real giraffe running through the streets of New York City, but wearing these may result in releasing your inner animal all over the city.While Feeling Sexy ($26) is the red printed knit boxer trunk with a navy waistband. This pair loosely translates a McQueen kaleidoscope graphic which screams “look at me” as you slip your jeans off.
Taking a break from the city, Ken Wroy has two styles that are more quiet than those that have been mentioned. Beach Boy($24) is as relaxed as a day in Fire Island, well, as relaxing as a Fire Island vacation can get. This pair lacks the busy graphics as the other pieces in the collection, but the sunburst orange printed knit and navy waistband is bright enough to garner attention on the beach and in the bedroom. Along with its chilled out vibe, is I Am Suave ($20) which is in the same design as Beach Boy but it has a teal colored printed knit, to prove exactly how smooth you can be.
Ken Wroy Summer collection is available in sizes S-L.
