The Collaboration between G-Star and Designer Marc Newson stretches back to 2003 and includes several clothing collections. Newson’s latest Limited Edition, Spring/Summer 2010 collection was presented at 10 Corso Como and will be available only at high-end retail boutiques including 10 Corso Como in Milan, Seoul, Tokyo and Colette in Paris.
The collection features four jackets and two t-shirts for both women and men - traditional utilitarian fabrics are replaced by premium materials such as leather, silk and paclite goretex and present a creative fusion of street-wear silhouettes and couture fabrics, based around an indigo color palate. The Leather Mesh Jacket and the Nappa Bonded Hood Jacket have kimono style sleeves while the Silk Jacket and the Galaxy Jacket (Galaxy print on Paclite Goretex) feature A-style-zip detailing with hidden pockets and minimal seams.
The Long Sleeve Tee and the Short Sleeve Tee feature washed leather strips on the upper back and arms and are made from 100% Cotton.
The Limited Collection will debut at selected boutiques around the globe from January 2010.
