WHAT A SHOW! G-Star Raw definitely puts on a well choreographed and interesting show each season. With 3 runways, zigzagged paths (for the no less than 4 models at a time) to walk and large white cylinders that moved to reveal each model, I was sure I would see a collision, but everything went flawlessly.
The show had me singing the blues afterward, but definitely not in a bad way. The color blue showed up in almost every piece in various shades, textures and patterns. G-Star Raw is known for its experimentation with denim and they absolutely "bring it" every season, but I was pleasantly surprised to see many other lighter materials used. With a futuristic/distorted ladies-who-lunch/'80's-inspired feel, this collection presented a little something for everyone, but still stayed true to G-Star's roots.
The men's and women's jackets and blazers were well fitted and tailored exquisitely, and for the second season in a row, the signature exaggerated drop-crotch played a large theme in the collection. Pairing casual and dressy pieces made the line versatile and fun. The color pallate included blues, whites, blue and white print, and a few splashes of green. My favorite men's look of the line was a royal blue suit jacket with matching shirt and "solace" (reminiscent of formal jogging) pants, and the Neo dress for women, an on-trend one-shouldered dress with a blue & white abtract print of pirhanna that, at first glance, resembled innocent paint swirls.
