The following information is from G-Star RAW:

G-Star RAW by Marc Newson

Since 2003, G-Star has been collaborating with the noted industrial designer Marc Newson on a number of mainline and limited-edition clothing collections that have fused high-tech materials with casual designs. The result is an evolving range of unique luxury street wear. For Spring/Summer 2011, the G-Star RAW by Marc Newson program continues his exploration of two key themes: the simplification of line through technical construction techniques, including single-piece arms and minimal seams; and the bold use of amplified, almost cartoonish style, graphics.

One of the highlights of this seasons’ collection is the Sokol Space Hooded Jacket, which features an enlarged graphic of an astronaut’s suit. The zipper runs over the front of the hood, enabling it to fully close, while keeping visibility through a silver mesh fabric. The same graphic is used for the Sokol Space Shirt. Another recurring print is an oversized, chunky zipper graphic, as seen on the XL Zip Hooded Vest and the XL Zip Shirt. All shirts in the G-Star RAW by Marc Newson program are available with graphics in a contrasting or silver metallic colour.

The pant section of the G-Star RAW by Marc Newson program plays with a fake-theme. The Fake Turn Up Denim for instance, incorporates a printed selvedge turn up on the outside of the pant, while the Ghost 5620 Chino features stitching that mimics the look of the G-Star Elwood.

As with all of Marc’s collections, the overall result is a sophisticated range of leisure wear that appears simplistic on the surface but reveals its complexity and detailing the more you investigate. G-Star RAW. Just the Product.

    whenever I hear Marc Newson I have to think of the movie objectified where one moment you hear one of the Bouroulecs speak about that a chair should also be considered sat one with a loud drunk Australian guy sitting in it, and the other one goes: "are you talking about Marc Newson?" Next shot is Marc Newson doing his part of the documentary interview. Brilliant..and well these shirts are a bit loud..and drunk..I like my fashion more subtle….the spaceman jacket made me smile though.

      "these shirts are a bit loud..and drunk"

      So are most guys who buy G-Star RAW. It's not the subtlest of brands.

      • nitneuq

        ahahah thats true !!!
        thats really not a subtle brand… and people wearing it too…

  • shareman

    This collection seems tell me a good product designer does not mean it is also a good fashion designer.

  • nofelix

    I like the orange outline t-shirt, but who's to say what it looks like when worn.

  • Uhm, lets get the facts straight: The other says: No, Marc is much more subtle than that. THEN the shots move to Marc Newson.

    Second G-star is much more subtle than what the buyers show. Just look at the Correct Line and the Midnight collection.

  • Daan

    That's right Stefan

  • Fila

    Spaceman jacket is cool.

  • the 'frame' T shirts are good and the fake turn-ups made me smile.
