Denim in the Dunes

Denim took to sandy Saharan dunes at G-Star's Spring/Summer 2011 show at New York Fashion Week.

Denim took to sandy Saharan dunes at G-Star's Spring/Summer 2011 show at New York Fashion Week. The specialist denim label's collection was inspired by the raw beauty and earthy palette of the desert. G-Star's iconic functionality met with couture style in key pieces such as the Kalahari dress, which featured a raw denim bodice and full silk skirt. The collection was enhanced with an evocative palette which encompassed the sandy-beige of dunes, the clear blue of desert skies and the inky blacks of a Saharan night.

The well-considered melange of signature denim, unexpected elements and distinctive silhouettes made for a collection that is at once whimsical and eminently wearable.
