Quiksilver Presents Saturn
Quiksilver, the original boardshort company, is celebrating the release of Saturn, a Y2K-inspired collection. In addition to the on-trend capsule of boardshorts, tees, long-sleeves and fleece, Quiksilver is releasing a short film 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. Quiksilver will be celebrating the release of the collection and the film with a world tour, hosting premieres in Australia, Europe, Hawaii and California.
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 channeled 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 colors and featuring bold contrast stitching.
The world tour of premieres for Saturn the film will begin in Newcastle, Australia, on Nov. 17, 2022, with the global screening finale on Dec. 1, 2022, in Costa Mesa, California.
