It was in a relaxed nautical atmosphere at the Pier 94 port terminal along the river in Manhattan that the G-Star Raw presentation took place. There was a red carpet prepared for the occasion for guests that arrived before a horde of reporters crowded to sketch the best looks of celebrities.
It was amidst fresh and intoxicating music that opened the show that had the feeling of being overseas. True to it’s reputation, G-Star has been innovative in terms of cuts, washes and shades of denim from indigo to faded denim. The theme of the desert explorer was represented in shades of sand, white and blue including cargo style that was overall “denim-looking”. With his new collection, G-Star has given an interesting twist by including parts of asymmetrical zippers and extra large pockets and combining the military look which is famous for the line. Perfect to counter inclement weather, the waterproof hooded nylon loose-style parachute pants and denim offered an interesting mix of raw materials combining the rigid and the fluid.
More cautious than the previous season, G-Star has built on safe values by opting for comfortable clothing. A modern touch showing the versatility of denim clothing that always reinvents itself every season a bit.
