G-Star RAW and fashion designer David Laport debut Couture capsule collection

Fashion designer David Laport combines his intricate designs with the denim expertise of G-Star RAW to collaborate on the capsule collection Denim After Dark, consisting of a Haute Couture dress and a ready-to-wear top. Both designs feature Laport’s signature pleats and sculptural design.

The unexpected pairing came from the potential to make a true statement with a contrast between G Star’s raw aesthetic and Laport’s delicate creations. Shot by the South-African fashion photographer Walter Pierre, the collection is an ode to nocturnal adventures and the endless possibilities of denim design.

Couture replaces the casual denim

Leveraging the DNA of G-Star, Laport created a fashion forward dress that highlights contemporary couture design. Created in premium Japanese selvedge denim and tulle, the short dress epitomises  festive evening wear, where volume meets sophistication alongside intricate details. Handcrafted in Italy, Laport’s signature pleating technique features throughout the garment.

Following this, the ready-to-wear piece is a wearable translation of the couture dress. The pleated  bow-top makes for a strong but feminine style, perfect for the woman who dares to make a statement. Also created in premium Japanese selvedge denim with tulle, the classic bow will be reconstructed into a modern evening wear staple.
