Here is a look at the new G-Star x Kitson collection. I absolutely love every piece from this collection. The sweatpants are modern an fresh. The vest has such a perfect wash that can be styled with a dress. The shorts are also an amazing staple for the women. They look like they would look great on many.
My favorite though, of course, would have to be their Arc Skinny jeans. I just think those are beyond amazing. The wash is just so versatile. I also like the thicker waistband. It gives them a smart look. Check out the collection below.
G-Star have partnered with artist Ryan Gander and Wallpaper* magazine on a fun project. As they ship their proprietary 3D-denim, the Arc Loose Tapered, to stores worldwide, 30 pairs will be the limited edition Ryan Gander G-Star Arc Pants!
Beginning yesterday, August 1st, visitors of G-Star stores worldwide might find one of the 30 limited edition Arc Pants from G-Star RAW, customized by Ryan Gander. The project was commissioned as part of Wallpaper* magazine’s ‘Artist Intervention’ series and was previewed at Wallpaper*s Handmade exhibition during this years Salone del Mobile in Milan.
Conceptual artist Ryan Gander’s collaboration with G-Star involves adding discreet white embroidery, to mimic drips of paint, on select pairs of the brands 3D Arc Loose Tapered jeans, in addition to a small-figurine key ring. The basis for this design intervention comes from renowned modernist Le Corbusier’s phrase “By law all buildings should be white”, which inspired Gander to invent a national holiday in Japan called ‘New New Day’, encouraging people to paint buildings white. The symbol of this day is ‘Arata-Chan’ (translated as ‘cleaning helping friend’), a little figurine with Le Corbusier-style glasses and a paintbrush in his hand. The white embroidered ‘paint drips’ on these limited edition Arc Pants are a visual representation of this concept.
From August 2011, the 30 limited edition pairs of men’s denim will be distributed without fanfare to selected G-Star stores, where customers can buy for the regular retail price. “I like the idea that someone might think they’re damaged, try to return them and not realize they’re getting a limited edition,” Ryan Gander says. “If you specifically wanted a pair, you couldn’t go looking for them. It’s a bit like Willy Wonka’s golden ticket.”
One pair of the limited edition Arc Pants will be on auction on the G-Star Facebook page. The resulting money will be donated to charity. The collaboration is featured in full in Wallpaper*s August issue, out now – please click here for the making-of video by Ingmar Swalue.
Gavin Rossdale was spotted giving the thumbs up as he was leaving Cecconi’s Italian Restaurant after having lunch in Beverly Hills, California with his family. He wore his G-Star Arc Loose Tapered jeans in Rugby Destroyed. I really like the wash of these jeans and the little destructed areas.
I think this is a great look on Gavin. I like the blazer with the jeans. I could do without the scarf or just the way it is placed around his neck, but other than that I think it is great. The shoes are a great pairing. It is dressed up, but still laid back because of the destructed tee underneath.
