G-STAR RAW FW2014/15 collection is putting a spotlight on dark denim. Women’s and men’s pieces in deep blacks are offered in a range of coatings and finishes. Ranging from classic raw denims, to modern semi-matte versions or refined lustres by varying black textures and materials, timeless style is easy to achieve.
G-Star dark denims work perfectly when skilfully layered, giving a subtle, sophisticated look. For men, the rich velvety Wearlent Bomber perfectly compliments matt dark denims. This medium weight quilted bomber exemplifies the G-Star modern classic. The high-tech Cantos Zip Sweater gives depth to any woman’s winter wardrobe. The sweater’s stretchy bonded fabric is embossed with an all over pattern, a uniquely fresh take on performance wear.
RAW for the Oceans is a long-term creative exploration, where Bionic Yarn and G-Star RAW have joined forces to innovate denim while making a serious impact on the plastic pollution in our oceans. The initiative is culminates in G-Star collections, made from Bionic Yarn. The collaboration is in cooperation with The Vortex Project, an initiative by sustainable platform Parley for the Oceans.
Bionic Yarn develops and manufactures premium yarns and fabrics made with fibres derived from recycled plastic bottles. Not only is it the first high-performance eco-thread, unlike prior breakthroughs aimed solely at functional improvement, Bionic Yarn is the first advancement also driven by environmental responsibility. The Vortex Project is a non-for profit initiative founded in 2013 by Bionic Yarn, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, and Parley for the Oceans. The Vortex Project addresses the fast-growing threat of plastic pollution, collecting waste from the oceans, to recycle, enhance, and reuse it for yarn, fabric, and other components used for consumer products. Parley is a collaboration space where influential creators, thinkers and leaders explore ideas and co-create projects to end the destruction of the oceans.
