We’ve already seen G-Star’s S/S 2010 RTW on NY’s runway, and now it’s time to take a look at the brands 2010 lookbook (yeah, our obsession knows no limits!). As seen clearly in the images G-Star’s staple silhouette for the upcoming spring is what they call ‘The new Low Loose Tapered cut’, which features an ultra-low crotch, high volume top section and extreme tapered legs. It comes in a wide selection of washes and finishes, including Raw denim, vintage/worn-in, destroyed, repaired and paint spattered. The Correct Line and Midnight, two denim-complementary ranges of wool, cashmere, silk and leather pieces that combine craftsmanship and precise tailoring expand the G-Star wardrobe to allow men to wear denim right through the working day and on to any evening social occasion, regardless of its exclusivity. And the cream of the crop – The Handcrafted range which showcases G-Star’s passion for the raw denim fabric. Japanese selvage denim is hand-stitched by skilled craftspeople to form a range of tailored jackets, as well as shorts, pants and shirts. All pieces are lined in the waist with hickory denim and internal stitching and seams are taped for maximum comfort. Impressive, huh?!
Not to be mistaken with denim brand Edwin, Japanese label Bedwin is known for their high end street style. Creatively directed by Masafumi “Bebe” Watanabe, the labels Fall/Winter 09 collection follows a simple yet tried-and-true concept of fresh twists and perspective on classics. Also eminent is the mix of heritage inspired gear with modern technical garments which work perfectly together and create a fresh, bold look.
Laidback 1980’s American west coast and grungy 1990’s style clash in the Tiger Jeans collection for the Spring/Summer of 2010. It’s a play with preppy style in two directions that ends up in an updated interpretation of Americana – a modern blue denim concept that owes its heritage to American style ideals and an easygoing coordination of garments. Denim washes range from original worn-out looks via stonewashed to more purple tones with a hazy look. Colours in other parts of the collection are from a multitude of blue shades to light colours – mainly pastels with an attitude.
True to the labels Scandinavian origin, Won Hundred’s spring summer 2010 collection is cool, clean and casual. You won’t find any of that vintage stuff here – perhaps a little nod to old times in their choice of materials, but other than that the collection’s relaxed, modern vibe is all about now, not then.
