G-Star Raw has collaborated again! Especially for Selfridges, the brand created a Limited Edition Type C jean signed by Sergio
Pizzorno, of Kasabian. From October 10th, only 100 pieces from the 150 made, will be exclusively available from selfridges.com.
The Type C is the latest and most unrestrained 3D denim from G-Star. First appearing as a prototype at New York Fashion Week, it is constructed with an anatomical fit, tapered legs and oversized rear pockets. Alongside Mariinsky ballerina Keenan Kampa, Sergio Pizzorno wears the Type C in the G-Star RAW Autumn/Winter 2013 campaign by Rankin.
Inspired by their campaign collaboration, G-Star and Sergio Pizzorno joined forces to release a limited edition version of the Type C. A total of 150 of these jeans have been made, and each one is crafted from 14oz dark aged denim with a special off-white pocket patch and logo. The patch of each pant is stamped with its own number, and is personally signed by Sergio Pizzorno as a mark of
authenticity. The other 50 limited edition jeans will be available later in the month at the G-Star Raw website.
I am lucky enough to own one of these jeans, I own number 4 in the collection, and they are gorgeous! As well as being obsessed and addicted to denim, I’m also a bit of a denim collector, so I was incredibly excited when I received these! They look exactly like the photos in this post in terms of wash and 3D elements. If you love G-Star Raw denim, I can definitely tell you would love these guys! These are only for the men, they don’t come in women’s cuts at all, but ladies you could probably wear them as a boyfriend jean if you found the right size! What do you think of them?

You can see some of the looks that walked the runway featuring the collaboration pieces in the gallery below. I have also included some info from the press release about the collection for you as well. What do you think of it?
Jean Machine, the contemporary men’s denim brand, announces its first offering in partnership with Missoni, the iconic Italian fashion house. Both family run businesses, and specialists within their product categories, the two companies make a natural fit.
The collaboration for Autumn-Winter 2013 will offer Jean Machine’s signature JM2 straight leg jean in a clean blue Rinse wash with Missoni knitted pockets in the season’s blue-camel colour pallet. Also offered is the classic JM4 jacket, reworked to include a button out detachable Missoni zigzag felted wool waistcoat in a coordinating blue-camel knit. Together they offer an understated, simple style statement. Jean Machine’s concept is straightforward: great quality, well-cut men’s jeans with an understated approach to style.
In the 1970s, Jean Machine was the definitive denim store on the King’s Road in London, famous for providing the best-fitting jeans around. In 2008, it was re-launched as Jean Machine by Chloe Lonsdale, daughter of founder Tony, who wanted to deliver the ease and confidence of the original Jean Machine to a new, modern man. Missoni, the iconic Italian fashion house, celebrates its 60th birthday this year.
The men’s A/W 2013 collection references the family’s artisanal knitwear heritage while continuing its constant focus on innovating exclusive knit techniques. This is represented in the unique Missoni fine loom knits only made in Sumirago Italy that form the core of the brand’s tailored offering for A/W 2013.
