led by artist and designer Aitor Throup.
Each garment is a unique prototype piece developed as a design blueprint for future collections. An exclusive glimpse into next season now.
“G-Star RAW Research is a place to think of new possibilities. Just how far can we push jeans?” Aitor Throup
New Directions In Denim
Using superior Italian selvedge denim for all pieces, the collection explores its absolute extremes: from untreated, loom-state fabric to bleached white.
The Strett offers a refined take on a classic sportswear piece. It comes with an integrated, detachable backpack and an engineered hood adding to the jacket’s strong identity – functional yet progressive.
Staq 3D Tapered Jeans
The Staq jeans are a hybrid of traditional jeans and chinos. The design uses a new method of 3D construction with an internal taping system that creates its 3D structure and “stacked” leg.
Featuring a spiral 3D sleeve seam, the Deline jacket explores a new, angular design language, where the focus lies on concinnity – the balance and harmony of lines, where they meet and how they interact. The strapping system in the back allows the jacket to be carried on the shoulders when not in use.
5620 Motion 3D Tapered Jeans
The 5620 Motion is a hybrid of traditional workwear jeans and motorcycle pants. Its ergonomic design is constructed using the 3D Denim approach with reinforced 3D knees, integrated rib inserts, and engineered stretch self-fabric panels.
The Strett Parka is a new take on the classic parka, featuring an integrated detachable backpack, simple yet extreme.
Lanc 3D Tapered Jeans
The Lanc jeans rethink 3D pattern cutting. By challenging the position of traditional side seams, they create an anatomically-shaped garment. This results in the iconic selvedge side seam being shifted from the side to the front.
Rackam Bomber Jacket
The Rackam bomber is the new interpretation of the classic bomber jacket – the sleeve is segmented into big, bold blocks, which create an ergonomic shape. The large back pocket contains a detachable strapping system, which allows the jacket to be carried on the shoulders when not in use.
Rackam 3D Tapered Jeans
The Rackam jeans use a new approach to 3D pattern cutting. Bold, horizontal lines cut through the garment – creating seemingly straight blocks. Each line contributes to the overall ergonomic shape, whilst allowing the integration of additional pockets.
