Beyond denim wear, G-STAR RAW has always been more than just about jeans and outwear. With Pierre Morisset at the helm, the brand is transformed itself into an ecosystem of ready-to-wear and accessories, with cool, edgy vibe at its backbone. For its Fall 2011 collection, the Raw denim line was crafted using nylon, leather, and industrial materials to create a 3D denim effect.
Showing both mens and women’s wear, the play of masculine textures on feminine silhouettes paired against soft and structured menswear culminated in an energetic display of the brand’s savoir-faire. This season, pieces featured hidden functionalities, based on 1920’s explorers, that were then fused with elegant tailoring. Utility belts, blown up denim life jackets, cropped US Army jackets, khaki canvas trousers, and city camouflage overcoats with modern geometric prints stood out as some of the most notable pieces.
The color palette is more muted than seasons past, with a focus on indigo, hunting green and utility grey. And with one of the worst winter seasons on record, brand fans will be consoled to know this collection utilizes high tech properties that should keep you warm, windproof and waterproof next winter.
The front row was star-filled with afficionados of the Dutch fashion house, with British actress Gemma Arterton, world no. 1 chess player Magnus Carlsen, Rosario Dawson, Marvel’s “Thor” Chris Hemsworth and wife Elsa Pataky, Jared Leto, Mena Suvari, Yaya DaCosta, Danny Flaherty, Kiko Mizonara and Sophia Black D’Elia all in attendance.
