G-Star just announced their 3rd Q-Store which opened in Lennox Square mall in Atlanta, GA this month. G-Star opened the shop in collaboration with Atlanta’s Standard Boutique.
G-Star’s Q-Store concept started in 2008, which allowed retailers to create a shop-in-shop concept incorporating G-Star designed furniture and apparel within a minimum area of 200 square feet. There are currently six Q-Systems operating across the US. Based on the profitable execution of the Q-System; G-Star further evolved this concept, introducing the Q-Store. The Q-Store is comprised of 50-65% G-Star merchandise with the remaining retail space comprised of non-competing brands.
CEO of North America, Stuart Millar explained the choice to collaborate with Standard, “Standard are one of G-Star’s oldest partners in the US and we have built an extremely positive relationship which has led us to this point. G-Star and Standard now have an agreed growth strategy in place and we’re excited to watch this unfold in the short term future.”
Since Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have started dating, I’ve noticed a change in Kim’s style. She seems to have toned things down a bit and is mixing in tougher pieces of clothing, like her J Brand leather pants and sneakers.
While out in Studio City, she wore a pair of Balmain jeans with a white peplum top and heels. I wonder if Kanye had any influence on Kim wearing Balmain, since he’s such a big fan of the brand and is spotted out in it frequently. You can join the discussion of Balmain in the forums here.
Salma Hayek lands at JFK airport after arriving from a flight. Salma is busy on the promotional tour for her new film, Savages. The film, directed by Oliver Stone, is about a Mexican drug Cartel and it stars Blake Lively and Taylor Kitsch.
Salma wore a pair of J Brand’s Mid-Rise slim boot cut jeans with a pair of heels and black blouse. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen Salma in a pair of skinny jeans, she definitely dresses very classically and true to her style. She doesn’t really dabble in a lot of trends but she always look great. You can buy these jeans online at JBrandjeans.com.
If anyone can pull off high-waist white jeans, it’s Miranda Kerr! Miranda wore a pair of Stella McCartney white jeans with a matching top and a pair of Celine sunglasses.
Hands down, if there was one celebrity who’s closet I could raid, I’d choose Miranda’s! She’s worn a lot of popular trends this past week, but she always looks so well put together and polished instead of trendy or like she’s trying too hard. You can buy these jeans from Stella McCartney for $219.
