G-Star RAW by Marc Newson is an exclusive line of premium pieces, designed by one of the world’s most respected industrial designers. Every piece is developed from the ground up based on Newson’s industrial design principles, resulting in creative fabric combinations and unique constructions.
While the collection evolves every season, constant elements are luxurious fabrics, high-tech trims and clever prints. In the latest collection, Newson adds silky soft leather accents to the elbows, forearms and shoulders of his overshirts, sweats and jackets. The placement references traditional workwear, while the softness of the leather adds a premium twist.
Newson works with heavier weights for his denim creations. He uses a 15.3oz Red Listing selvedge indigo denim for his 5-pocket jeans.
Finished with simple, but original pocket shapes and minimal hardware, the denim is slowly woven on traditional shuttle looms, producing a subtle crosshatch effect and blue-black indigo cast that pays homage to Japanese denim.
“ Each season Marc Newson designs a new collection that G-Star brings to life. The collaboration bridges the worlds of industrial and clothing design. ”
