Following their recent eyewear collaboration, G-Star RAW has once again joined forces with superstar DJs and producers, Eva Shaw and Afrojack. The result of their second partnership is a men’s and women’s capsule collection for the Fall/Winter 2016 season.
Bothe these collections are heavily inspired by these artists’ personal style and aesthetic. Combing sexy, street style, functional and “raw”.
Eva’s collection is influenced by her signature silhouette, the collection revolves around her go-to outfit: skinny jeans, a cropped top and bomber jacket. The capsule’s color palette combines black, white and bottle green; all coming together to deliver fresh fall essentials – perfect for festival season and beyond. Eva Shaw and G-Star RAW share an affinity for pushing the boundaries. “The collection reflects what I believe women should feel; both empowered and sexy at the same time” says Eva on the second partnership with the denim brand.
Afrojack’s collection is an urban-inspired take on American sportswear classics, the capsule also features crew neck T-shirts (with short, three-quarter and long sleeves), a sweatshirt, hoodie and of course – a trucker cap: Afrojack’s accessory of choice. Strong, clean graphics centering around the letter ‘A’ appear in the form of high density rubber artworks on shirt fronts and sleeves. Says Afrojack on the collaboration: “Together with G-Star we created pieces that are an extension of who I am. The collection consists of styles I can easily wear performing and traveling.”
As the collections fall during the 20th anniversary of the Elwood 5620 jeans, a super-skinny version of the iconic denim (in both distressed bleach and coated black) was the perfect starting point for these capsule.
