Following three successful years as a creative consultant to the brand, G-Star RAW  welcomes Aitor Throup as its Executive Creative Director. The RAW Research collection was born from G-Star’s internal innovation lab, developed and led by the British designer. Focused on experimenting with product design by clashing tradition and innovation, the laboratory symbolises an endeavour to find new ways of crafting denim. The result: the first RAW Research collection.

G-Star RAW continues its innovative take on denim with the latest and most directional capsule collection from to hit select stores early December. Both the studio and the brand are committed to imagining and creating new ways of story-telling through object design and the production of related materials. “My new position at G-Star will also allow me to reflect my approach to product design and story-telling as well as some of the practices and systems which we will continue to utilise within my own studio” said The Royal College of Art graduate.

By using supreme Italian selvedge denim fabric for every single piece, the capsule collection explores the two polar opposite states in the life of a denim garment: rigid, untreated raw denim on one extreme and bleached-white denim, where only a hint of indigo remains, on the other.

Although Scotch & Soda has been around since the ‘80s as a menswear label, the Amsterdam based fashion brand made a new start in 2001, when three new owners joined their broad experience and shared love for making great garments. After Scotch & Soda was re-launched, new lines were gradually added, such as Maison Scotch for women, and Scotch Shrunk and Scotch R’Belle for kids. In late 2010, the first Scotch & Soda was launched by the name of BARFLY. Scotch’s youngest and most ambitious project is Amsterdams Blauw, a compact high profile denim collection.

imageimageLeading light of British Designer Menswear, Lou Dalton has teamed her expertise with Premium British clothing brand Jaeger to create an exciting collection of outerwear pieces. These two stylish entities have come together to combine their practical philosophy and sense of adventure to produce a collection that puts functionality at the forefront. Taking inspiration from and revolutionising Jaeger’s enviable heritage, including design features from the archive collection, and items worn by Adventurer extraordinaire, Ernest Shackleton and his team for their 1914 Endurance Expedition to Antarctica, and combining it with Lou Dalton’s signature aesthetic for contemporary classicism and refined yet contemporary tailoring.

In keeping with Shackelton’s careful selection of Jaeger to supply his protective kit over a century ago, the new collection has been meticulously curated by Dalton and the design team, led by James Jee, at Jaeger. This premier collection launching for Autumn consists of, non-surprisingly, outerwear essentials for the contemporary urban adventurer.

imageKey pieces within the range include a nylon trench with a removable flannel gilet, a shower-proof stretch nylon hooded jacket, a mixed-gauge wool sweater, as well as a balaclava, gloves and all important snood.

The colour palette is natural influenced by the natural environment. Ink navy, camel and charcoal grey are juxtaposed with rust and pale blue to imitate both rural and industrial environments.

Reflecting Lou’s signature line, this collection has a heavy focus on performance-wear, the collection is engineered to be worn on-the-go and is specifically designed for the wearer to embrace the natural elements. Fabrics have been chosen based on their technical abilities, including thermocool wool and stretch nylon to ensure maximum manoeuvrability. Handy, sneaky design features include pack-away zip hoods, natural contoured shapes, engineered to fit closely to the shape of the body and storm cuffs for a streamline effect.

imageJames Jee, Head of Menswear Product at Jaeger says of the collaboration, “It’s been fantastic to build upon her design skills and aesthetic, as well as bringing in some of our well-established principles as a brand. Jaeger was founded upon a pioneering premise around quality of fabrication, and even now, some 132 years later we are embracing this principle in new and exciting ways. The Lou Dalton for Jaeger collection is a great example of this”.
