G-Star RAW and David Laport replace the casual with couture
Teaming up with the iconic luxury-wear designer David Laport, G-Star RAW has created its latest capsule collection: Denim After Dark. Sharing two very special pieces; a Haute Couture pleated dress and a ready-to-wear versatile top, this capsule has been dubbed “where couture replaces the casual”. Both of these exquisite items feature Laport’s signature style of pleats and sculptural wear. Here, much like his own brand, there is no limit to what denim can do. This pairing of perspectives brings with it a new take on luxury wear, as we see the contrast between G-Star’s raw aesthetic and Laport’s delicate tendencies. The fusion, however, is a moment to behold.
The campaign has been shot by none other than Walter Pierre, and is said to be “an ode to nocturnal adventures and the endless possibilities of denim design”. And in true Pierre style, the balance between minimalist and surrealism is at play, alongside the same contrasting elements of the collection itself. Both pieces were created using premium Japanese selvedge denim and tulle alongside being handcrafted in Italy. Could this be the new trend of modern evening wear? We hope so.
