G-Star Raw at NYC Fall/Winter Fashion Week 2011
While of course the shows star was the signature denim, G Star showed a collection that played with the brand’s jean foundation and pushed the sartorial boundaries on other fabric as well. Using padded nylon, leather, and lots of techincal materials, G-Star gave a show of nearly futuristic proportions. Mixing womens with menswear, we saw utility belts, hot pants, over sized baggy jeans and a grey wool bioler suit on the girls while the guys wore blown up denim life jackets, cropped U.S. Army jackets, khaki/canvas trousers and jackets with distorted camouflage. Raw denim was of course very much part of the fabric palette and color wise navy, green and black were dominant. The use of leather impressed at the Lincoln Center catwalk. All in all, G-star put together an inventive and impressive line.
