G-Star Raw Men’s & Women’s Denim Picks #MagicMarketWeek #ProjectLasVegas


G-Star Raw presented a utilitarian-chic lineup of men’s and women’s denim for their FW13 showing here in Vegas, following up on an intense FW13 runway show earlier this season. Their new campaign, The Art of Raw, exemplifies the boundless possibilities of a lifestyle carved from raw denim, weaving elements of military style, formal wear, and streetwear into a new kind of “uniform”. The art can be found in clean lines, denim treatments, the pairing of materials (ie: denim and leather)… all through a very fresh and updated lens. We selected our favorite pieces from the line below.

The Eco-Friendly Denim Shopping Guide


In case you hadn’t noticed, we’re big fans of the three Rs (reduce, reuse, recycle), plus one more–repair! Denim Therapy can help you extend the life of your jeans, but if you’re looking to buy some eco-friendly denim, we’ve also got you covered. Here are six awesome brands doing their best to help the environment:

M2F

With colored denim being such a big hit this season, it’s especially cool that M2F created a dye bath that uses 50% less energy and water than traditional methods, while also eliminating commonly used toxic materials. Plus, their Made2Fade Technology Yarn is certified by the Swedish OEKO-TEX lab to be free of any harmful substances.

Pastel Skinny Jeans | Light Wash Skinny Jeans | Traveler Denim Jacket

 

G-Star RAW Sustainable

G-Star RAW Sustainable collection is not only made entirely out of organic cotton, which minimizes the use of harsh-on-Mother-Nature pesticides and other pollutants, G-Star also touts various sustainable operations practices, like reducing energy use and only using transportation companies that meet certain environmental standards.

Navy Shirt | Navy Pencil Skirt

Nudie Jeans

For spring/summer 2012, Nudie Jeans produced 43% of its garments from organic cotton, with the longer-term goal to amp that number up to 100%. As part of their larger efforts to reduce waste, their Post Recycle Dry program takes old Nudie jeans and makes them into new, limited edition pairs.

Thin Finn Organic Jeans | Grim Tim Organic Blue Fade Jeans

 

Levi’s Water<Less Jeans

Making jeans is a water-intensive process, and a lot of the environmental cost of production comes from water. Often, jeans are washed multiple times before we take ‘em home, but the Levi’s Water<Less Jeans finishing process uses up to 96% less water than usual. 172 million liters of water (and counting!) have been saved so far.

511 Skinny Jeans – 3D Coated | Modern Demi Curve Ankle Skinny Jeans

 

Edun

Perhaps you know Edun best in relation to its founders Ali Hewson and Bono, but the ethical clothing line isn’t simply a celeb pet project. The company focuses on fair wage and labor practices, and uses organic cotton to produce their line.

Indigo Denim Jacket | Denim Flares

 

Kuyichi

With jeans made from organic cotton, hemp, recycled wool, and more, Kuyichi prides itself in using eco-friendly and recycled fabrics, including natural dyes. Their full list of sustainable materials used is pretty informative as well, if you pride yourself in knowing the benefits of the alternative fabrics used.

1. Take a close-up look at Kapital Clothing, asap.

“Detailing in the form of traditional Japanese Boro and tattoo inspired embroidery, silver concho buttons on heavyweight knitwear, incredible raw denim and patchwork faded indigo, a shawl collared coat that nearly brought on the vapors.”

2. We’re in love with this new denim jacket by Rag & Bone, bringing back the denim x leather combo we were all over a few seasons ago. This is a great staple for fall.

3. Dig into the political aspect of indigo dye in this film on its history by Mary Lance.

4. Just in case you missed our announcement yesterday, the new G-Star store in Toronto opens tonight!

5. Don’t be the 40-year-old-dude wearing Bape. Gavin McInnes wants to show you how to dress your age.

G-Star RAW Offers a Sustainable Line For Spring 2012


G-Star’s RAW Sustainable line speaks to those who look for 100% organic cotton and sustainable denim which “seeks to minimize environmental impact without sacrificing style.”  The RAW Organic range items only use natural manufacturing processes, minimizing the need for pesticides and other pollutants.  For Spring/Summer 2012, the collection shows a heavy nautical-meets-utility wear influence, while maintaining feminine silhouettes by sourcing classic fits such as a high-waist Navy Flare, Navy Short and Navy Pencil Skirt.  If you’re looking for Earth Day friendly denim, then add this eco-conscious collection to your list.

In Store Now: G-Star Correct Line Spring 2012 Courier Arc Leg & Refined Separates


In stores now: the G-Star Correct Line Spring-Summer 2012 collection features a mix of casual denim staples and sophisticated lightweight separates.  This is G-Star’s more tailored line which expands beyond its progressive raw denim and streetwear collection.  Paying attention to construction, or deconstruction, rather, their Cruise Deconstructed Blazer ($280) and Baseball King Bomber jacket (constructed of 70/30 cotton-linen body; 100% leather sleeves, $230) will be a great daily backup for that elevated casual look you’re seeking.  And, as introduced, the  Courier Arc 3D jean ($180) will serve as your starting point.  The range includes a crafted selection of twill shirts and refined knits—all in seasonless hues.  Here’s a preview of the eye candy that’s in store.

1. Last weekend, Raf Simons presented his final collection at Milan Fashion Week as Creative Director for Jil Sander, because the founder of the brand is returning.  The womenswear is gorgeous, by the way.  Perhaps Simons will go back to further developing his namesake denim?  Fingers crossed.

2.  On February 21, G-Star RAW opened their largest global flagship store in the world, a 7,319 square feet brick-and-mortar store in Hong Kong.  The event was marked by stuntmen walking down the building and a traditional lion dance, with indigo blue lions. Watch the G-Star grand opening event online.

3. Kellan Lutz is certainly becoming a fashion fixture.  Between his acting and design collaboration with clothing brand Abbot+Main, he still found time to squeeze in front row at the Simon Spurr fashion show during NYFW.

4. Shopbop has a ONE by collection, a collaboration between multiple brands which feature covetable pieces on limited supply, such as this denim oxford shoe (featured above) by Anniel ($135).

5. What are you doing on Instagram? We found a couple of musician/concert photographers from IndieRockReviews.com, wearing Volcom and RVCA jeans out in SoCal.  Photo via Tim Johnson (@timtom949).

1. MiH Jeans have release three new pastel shades for spring/summer (if you haven’t heard, pastel is coming on strong for the warm months). Shop various colored jeans by MiH in their colored denim online shop.

2. On the other hand, Earnest Sewn is releasing some pop-colors for spring in saturated, fruity hues. We guess it’s time to decide whether we’re wearing pop-colors or pastel this year! …Just kidding, we’re going to wear both.

3. Eat Sleep Denim has a guide for those of us who think about getting rid of our denim the moment we buy it. (Wait, what?!) It’s not as cruel as it sounds. In fact, it’s quite smart.

4. Tenue de Nîmes met up with Japanese denim brand Pure Blue Japan at Pitti Uomo and uncovered some covetable jems you’ll want to see up-close. Luckily, they got their camera right in there and captured the gritty, gorgeous details.

5. Vincent Gallo seems to have a lot to think about in the new G-Star campaign.
