I went to the G-Star press showroom in London just over a week ago to see the new collections. I saw the current Spring/Summer 2012 collection (in this post) and I also saw the new Autumn/Winter 2012 pieces (those will come in another post). I didn’t photo the entire Spring/Summer collection because obviously it’s already out, so what I did was selected a few of my favourite pieces, or pieces that I thought were quite cool and different, and spotlighted them here in this post.
My absolute favourite jeans would be the grey moto jeans, I love them! I think the wash is so pretty and the stitching and detail that has gone into them is really well done. They are beautiful! I also liked the dark blue skinnies, the dark blue denim vest/sleeveless jacket and the cropped boy style shorts. I featured two items from their Raw Organic line which are the flared jeans with the lace up tie and the light blue chambray shirt. They also had a vivid light blue denim mini skirt which I thought was different. So what do you think of these pieces?

Selena Gomez and boyfriend Justin Bieber held hands after having lunch together at Panera bread. The previous day, the couple were seen having a picnic lunch together, but were snapped by the paparazzi.
Selena’s style has definitely got more relaxed when she’s not filming or on the Red Carpet. She wore a pair of American Eagle distressed capris with a tee shirt and scarf. Selena is definitely loyal to American Eagle, we’ve spotted her out quite a few times in the brand.
Just as Selena loves American Eagle, Justin loves G-Star. He wore a pair of dark wash slim fit G-Star jeans with a G-Star by Marc Newson hoodie and sneakers. I’d love to see Justin out in a pair of Diesel jeans, I feel like they’d fit his style perfectly!
