G-Star Raw by Marc Newson: Japanese Herringbone Selvage

For the coming fall, multi-disciplinary designer Marc Newson has once again created a capsule collection for G-Star RAW. This time the Australian born designer living in London focuses on the two distinct themes of distinctive European Streetwear and premium Japanese denim. We had a closer look at the latter, more specially two of the exclusive Japanese denim herringbone selvage pieces; the signature Marc Newson 5 pockets denim, and a lined denim jacket.

The 11 oz. double ring-spun red listed herringbone denim fabric is woven in Italy on original ‘President’ looms from Picanol. The weft is black yarn dyed and the warp is indigo yarn dyed with a black sulphur top. The combination of the saturated black-blue colour and the herringbone construction gives the fabric a contemporary edge.

In our opinion, the coin pocket design draws on clear references to A.B. Elfelt & Co. jeans (below) produced by the Rising Sun & Co., some critics might even say it’s too inspired.
