Pier 94/Bowery Hotel, NYC
G STAR RAW NY is based in the Netherlands...but for the past few seasons, has staged a terrific, well choreographed show, here in the Big Apple .
The company's tradeshow venue--- Bread & Butter, Berlin, focuses on street wise denim styles ...while separates shown across the Pond are less denim centric, we feel and more lifestyle/upscale. The clothes and footwear, G STAR NY RAW SPECIAL EDITION...is just as inventive though---youthful in tone, but sophisticated enough for the grown-ups.
Like their spokewoman...actress, mom, model, daughter of a rockstar-Liv Tyler.
Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca crossed with galloping horse riding adventurers...with the above one of our fav looks.
Outfit names in the run of show---Sahara Coat, Darbar Dress, Kalahari Dress, Bogart Jacket...Horse Riding Pant
Wearable motor jackets, blazers, tunics, leggings, pants (only a few "long crotch" looks that never sell stateside the way that cut does in western Europe)...
And a softening up of the casual wear wardrobe...no strict military looks that are rampant for Fall 2010. Refreshing.
Earlier in the week, G Star hosted G STAR Raw World Chess tour with top ranked player playing Magnus Carlsen against select genius types--- watched around the world, in real time, via the web.
The match took placed at the penthouse of the downtown Bowery Hotel...with stupendous forever views...
And this was as close as we got to the carefully guarded player...
