BBB | G-Star S/S 2011 Preview
In 1996, G-Star launched their iconic model – the Elwood. This revolutionary denim pant fused an articulated-knee design, taken from motocross trousers, with the functionality of work-wear pants. Evolving this approach, G-Star then introduced the Arc Pant. This highly architectural cut features a low-crotch and straight-hip, with an asymmetric tapered leg. The result is a silhouette built for a 3-D human.
For Spring/Summer 2011, G-Star continues to evolve this new 3-D denim design language. For men, the Charlie Loose Tapered combines 3-D leg architecture with a 7/8ths length; a curved waistband adds comfort, while deep, full-length rear pockets add a functional touch. Innovation, however, is not only reserved for 3-D denim. G-Star continues to re-imagine the traditional 5-pocket style with fresh features and distinctive G-Star twists. The Bullit pant for instance, offers a triple-stitched waistband, rubberized details and triangular back-seam insert.
