Men's jacket by Marc Newson in a combination of wool, leather and laminated Gore-tex
A judge for our Awards issue (W*119), Mr Newson is an indubitable innovator on the front line of the contemporary design scene.
Consequently, his enduringly successful collaborative relationship with urban brand G-Star, comes as little surprise.
Over the course of the past six years, Newson has produced several collections for G-Star with increasing international notoriety.
The latest monochromatic collection was launched this month from top Parisian boutique, Collette, in conjunction with Paris Fashion Week.
Known for an ‘architectonic approach’ to clothing design, G-Star’s urban luxury lends itself well to Newson’s constructed, geometric creative method – clean lines, raw materials and intricate craftsmanship take precedence on both sides.
The new collection features 5 black outer-garments for men, and 4 white outer-garments for women, produced from materials ranging from wool and leather to laminated Gore-tex.
100 pieces of each style will be available from various international retailers - so you had better get your skates on, we’re betting that they won’t be around for along.
