A PROJECT BY
G-STAR RAW + AITOR THROUP

The second collection born from the G-Star innovation lab led by artist and designer Aitor Throup.

Inspired
By The Impossible

RAW Research II represents G-Star design philosophy in its purest form. It proposes new ways of thinking about denim, resulting in real, radical product innovation.

“It’s a continuation of the first season: prototypes that will later function as blueprints for the main collection.”
