Here is a preview of what’s to come from the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from G-Star Raw. I have 3 photos from the official press day (bottom 3 in the gallery) and my own photos which I took from the PR companies showroom. I didn’t photo the entire collection as it was huge, so I took a mix of women’s and men’s pieces which stood out the most from the denim collection and avoided most of the classic blues so I could show you something new from the brand instead.
They definitely went for Autumn/Fall appropriate colours with the dark oranges, browns, creams and red tones. They also had some motor cycle inspired jeans which are a lot different to the usual moto fashion jeans. This new take on the trend means that you can actually ride a motor cycle in them. They have reinforcements around the knees and they are more flexible for movement while riding. I thought they were pretty cool! They are the dark blue (almost raw looking) pair of jeans towards the right in the photos. I also liked the men’s denim jacket, it had some nice whiskering and fading.
Overall I think they have some great pieces. The women’s selection seems more subtle as well, it’s not as heavily branded as I have seen in the past. They have gone for more simplicity instead. I’ve also included some denim accessories which I thought were really interesting! What do you think of the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection from G-Star?

Here are the photos I took of the Diesel Autumn/Winter 2012 men’s and women’s collection when I was at the Diesel Headquarters in London. They had some amazing jeans, seriously. As you know I have been a fan of Diesel for many many years now and they are a brand that take a big spot in my heart. I was excited seeing this collection because they have injected so much colour into the women’s line, it’s beautiful! Their main focus seems to be mustard yellows and burgundy reds which really add a bold brightness to the women’s department. I love the tie-dye prints on the colours as well.
For the guys, they had some incredible jeans! They have a new process called ‘impregnation’ which means they have injected the dye even deeper into the denim which gives it a more 3D effect. You can see in the photos that they have more crinkles and depth to them. It’s such a great effect because it makes the jeans look so unique and worn in, but at the same time they are full of colour. I fell in love with a pair of Safados (gallery image 15) because the wash on those was so nice. I would love for them to bring it out in women’s, I don’t think they will, but who knows!
Overall I’m really impressed with the new Autumn/Winter 2012 collection. Diesel have really upped their game with their washes this time around! Most of the jeans I liked, I only saw a minority that I wasn’t overly fond of. What do you think of the new seasons jeans? I know a lot of you are big Diesel fans too! Our Diesel section of the community is the most popular and very active with members who love the brand, so if you want to chat Diesel, you can always head over there and join in the jeans sharing fun! Otherwise, you can see the images in the gallery below and comment as usual.

Here is a preview of the new Fall 2012 Guess & Guess by Marciano men’s and women’s collections. They held their press event last week which showcased the brands apparel and accessories pieces.
Unfortunately I didn’t get to attend as I am in the UK, but from these pictures, it really looks like they make their press events fun! I love how they use real models to show off the pieces and how they always seem to like using animal prints each season. The aztec in black and white is also really pretty! I have a thing for prints like that. So what do you think of the new collections? Are you a fan of the prints too?

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?
