All that's missing are the in great taste hand tattoos.

Smart move to get ppl that don't give a fuck about gstar (me, you, everyone...) maybe a bit interested in the brand and an opportunity for AT to 1) test/develop his product design approach within the constraints/limitations of the brief, which he's all about (design is problem solving etc) and push further what he's done with Umbro and previous collabs - 2) create a whole new visual universe/language for the brand from the ground up. Seems like a win win.

I'm skeptical about his ability to change the brand's trajectory radically enough to make it interesting though, I guess that's what makes it an exciting challenge, so I'm not too excited about the end result but def. intrigued.

I had a g-star phase in the early 00s.

I got excited when a lady walked into my shop wearing head-to-toe G-Star(even her bag!). I thought she worked for them and wanted to talk to her about Aitor, but it turns out she just worked for a telecommunications company and really loves the brand mad.gif

shit i didn't realize g-star hired aitor
post #94988 of 102359
Yeah, itll be interesting to see what he does with denim as the main material. A lot of darting I suspect smile.gif
post #94989 of 102359
G-Star already has some kind of Arc / 3D pants (source: I walk by G-Star store every day) with darting and tapering. The cut actually looks pretty good. The details are hideous, but the pairing actually kind of makes sense in that regard

edit:

I'd buy these in a plain wash with all branding removed

Can't say for mens (Although I had 7 yr old raw denim from them) but from what I hear from a friend of mine their womens line is really nice for the price quality and fit wise.

I don't think I can add much, but Gallery Aesthete has some cdg and forme d'expression and possibly other brands you're interested in. There's also http://elu-chicago.tumblr.com/, which I've never been to but looks interesting. Not much else that sticks out around here.

Kind of RFT: tattoo sessions booked.
