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?

G-Star Raw Understands Denim Which Understands You

To be frank, G-Star Raw was a shop I have always found unapproachable until a few days ago when I got invited to their women’s event at the V&A Waterfront. I arrived rather sheepishly not knowing what to expect but after having a look around the amazing store, I actually thought to myself, this brand is so far from being unapproachable. If you have ever felt like that then I assure you, just walk in and your perception will change! They have something for everyone. Male and female. Every shape, cut and fit you could ever want from denims.

The event was hosted by local style connoisseurs – the createor and editor of Fashion Breed Aqeelah Harron Ally and artist/stylist at The Creative – Anelisa Mangcu. They shared their special relationship with the brand and how finding the perfect fit has affected their lives.

Since the brand launched a year before I was born, in 1989 they have taken denim to many heights, their most noteworthy achievement is that they made ‘luxury denim for the streets‘ by combining quality made denims with an edge, to make the best statement possible. Mixing this with washes and treatments, G Star Raw have created denims which are so much more than just another pair of denims. They are a further expression of you, your character, your lifestyle and your style. Their design is current but classic and a pair of denims will be an investment to your wardrobe, either dressing them up or down, you will feel equally as confident in the perfect fit for your shape.

Head of Women’s design for G-Star, Rebekka Bach explained,

“My team’s focus is to innovate with materials and fits that have a figure-enchancing effect. For example, the right placement of seams will determine whether your legs look skinnier and longer, and the right back pockets have a lifting effect.”

For the first time ever I might be vaguely excited to go shopping for a new pair of denims… as this is a task I have always seen as a chore! But G-Star Raw, be assured – I will be returning to the store in the new year to find MY perfect fit.

Thank you G-Star Raw, Aqeelah and Anelisa for having me at your event – I learnt so much and I am happy to have been formally introduced with G Star Raw denims.

Avril Lavigne Models Her New Line For 2012

Hiya Poutlings

The interwebs has been flooded with loads of pictures of Avril Lavigne wearing her new line of clothing, ABBEY DAWN for 2012. I must say, I’m impressed by some of the clothing, its unique, and I do like some of it. The shoes are WOW. I want some of these shoes. As some of you may be aware, I used to love Avril Lavigne, and parts me deep down inside still do, when she is not doing silly things, ahem, green hair, yes, I received a bit of slack about saying that it was a blonde move in the past about that, but I’m sorry, GREEN hair does not make a statement if your hair is naturally blonde, it looks like you’ve been swimming in chlorinated pools and well, AHEM, shaving one side of head which is all very blantant in these new promo images… I don’t care if you don’t like that I don’t like it, but really, I think it makes her stunning hair (when its not green…) LOOK LIKE SHITE.

…but try look past that, look at THE SHOES, and THE SKELETON DRESS. I want those. I do. hahaha.

But anywayyy… Here are some images of Avril wearing her new collection.

A penny for your thoughts?

20120819-214037.jpg

Walking through the stores lately and seeing something as simple as coloured jeans, how bright and amazing the world seems to be simply because of coloured jeans, it’s amazing!

Being a girl whose never been to adventurous with clothing (especially colour), I have fallen in love with coloured skinnies.

I have seen so many girls ROCKING this colourful look, whether with a flirty pair of pumps or sultry heels, they can be dressed up or down. Another amazing fashion idea!

So let’s get colourful Poutlings!

Weekend Trend Crush: Denim

It seems like denim’s been around forever and you and I both know it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. And this weekend Denim is hot hot hot! From short denim skirts to your favourite Sissy Boy jeans, go all out this weekend.

Do’s:

– Wear your denim shirts with your denim skirts or jeans.

– Wear flats or kitten heels with your short denim skirt.

– Wear jeans of all colours if you have the confidence to pull it off.

– Wear Daisy Duke shorts and skinny jeans if you have the pins of it.

– Pair your jeans with a long top if you don’t like your thighs

Don’ts:

– Wear white jeans. I don’t care if it’s in fashion right now, it’s hideous and no person should be caught dead in those.

– Wear colour jeans if you’re Madonna’s age coz it’s not going to flatter you in the least.

– Wear a mini denim skirt with super high heels unless teamed with tights. You don’t want to look like you’ve come off the set of Pretty Woman.

Have a lovely weekend pouters!
