Tight or Wide with G-Star RAW

A pair of jeans is not as on par as a pair of G-Stars RAW denims is. G-Star RAW have encapsulated all eras of our denims. The brand has been in existence since 1989 and have remained on point in terms of the fashion front. I would say trend is the wrong word. Possibly lifestyle of the brand has been focussed. Styles from when wide legs were fashionable to the formidable skinnies and since this is an ever changing circle in the realms of fashion they have expressed it through their wide range of styles and fits. For ladies, for gentlemen… for everyone.

With the help of exceptional photographer and film director Ellen von Unwerth they have brought out an incredible campaign. These images really do speak for themselves about a brand that is upbeat, not so serious about themselves but serious about fun, practicality and everyday wear.

Their message portrayed with these images is simple and beautiful.

Jeans connect us all.

A community beyond location, status, gender or age. Beyond style. Beyond fit.

The one garment we truly wear our own way.

I was invited to the Cape Town campaign launch last week but unfortunately I was unable to make it which I am super bummed about. However, G-Star RAW have launched their new collection for SS15 and its in stores from February. Go grab yours to express your style.

Find them on their website, Facebook and Twitter @GStarRAW. Now, G-Star RAW want to know – how do you wear yours? Let them know via all your social media today! With the hashtag…  #tightorwide

Mine most certainly has to be WIDE – what’s yours?

Marvellous, Mediocre & Meh at the 2014 Golden Globes

Although I might be a bit late with an update of the Golden Globes that were held this past weekend, I did laugh seeing Mnet broadcasting messages throughout the weekend to watch them live at 3am on MONDAY morning (late afternoon/evening in Beverley Hills)…. I can think of better things to do at a time like that, sleep is most definitely the best option and that is what I was doing.

I can’t bring myself to watch these award shows they are always so long winded but I do take a guilty pleasure in looking at the beautiful people, some wearing attire with a certain ‘it’ factor and others wearing things that look like they got dressed in the dark…

Marvellous

Kate Beckinsale

Kate Beckinsale Golden Globes

This lady literally radiates from the red carpet, shining bright in her dress which has a gorgeous silver bustier top and thigh skimming maxi skirt with a mermaid tail which was adorned with rhinestones and which resulted in the dress glowing in the lights of the carpet. Kate’s face was left fairly toned down which complimented a messy-but-perfect updo and her look was finished off with Jimmy Choo shoes and an Edie Parker clutch in black.

Taylor Swift Taylor Swift Golden Globes

I cannot believe it, but Taylor Swift looks amazing to me. Normally I don’t pay a second glance to her but she ticked all the boxes for the Golden Globes ceremony from  her toned down makeup with a bright red lip or her simple but striking Carolina Herrera dress, paired with Christian Louboutin shoes, Jimmy Choo clutch and Lorraine Schwartz jewellery I cannot fault her look.

Golden Gucci Resort 2014 Campaign

Gucci Resort 01

It feels like only a few weeks ago I was browsing through the countless amounts of Fall/Winter 2013 campaigns but time has passed far too quickly this year and bam we are being bombarded left, right and centre with 2014 campaigns!Gucci Resort 02Gucci Resort 03

Gucci has model Andrea Diaconu, who stands out for her poise, for the new Resort 2014 campaigns, the resort campaign is true elegance with golden skin reflective of the beautiful backdrop of the reddish-gold sunset. The pictures have a distinctive feel that they could be quite vintage, but they also bring some modern feeling to them too. I am still not loving slicked back hairstyles, especially with such feminine designs but it seems like they are here to stay for a while. Gucci Resort 04

Everything about the clothing pieces to the pair of gold ankle straps and the metallic clutch in silver translate to luxury and high style, enforcing Gucci is a true Italian brand.

Do you love it too?

Please do yourself a favor and google his work, or just follow him, because you’ll be amazed at his drawings. I’m not always one for cartoonish things, but his work indescribably inspirational on an artistic level. Not only that, you can draw up a lot of fashion ideas by looking at the pictures.

Have fun Pouters!
