G-Star Raw and Pharrell Williams Air Laundry During NYFW

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

G-Star Raw celebrated the launch of the brand’s G-Star Elwood X25, alongside Pharrell Williams, the brand’s co-owner, during New York Fashion Week (NYFW).

The star-studded event took place in a bespoke vintage Laundromat space meant to showcase Williams’ spin on the Elwood X25 silhouette for both men and women, a jogger-inspired fit with loose-fitting legs and a more form-fitting ankle. Among attendees were Jaden Smith, musician Desiigner and Joey Bada$$.

The location for the celebration was as curated as the denim, with laundry-machines whirring with various patterns inside in an effort to show party-attendees the many colors and prints available. Also on display were the inspiration and concept behind the prints, like Scottish bagpipes, fifties-style advertisements and more.

Forged in 1969, the G-Star Elwood was the first pair of jeans to be created using the 3D method—building around the wearer instead of a traditional fit pattern. The patterns featured in the new collection range from geometric pink and navy, to plaid-pajama-like, to florals, animal prints and paisleys alike.

“The G-Star Mat is a space that embodies what the G-Star Elwood X25 stands for – creativity and self-expression. The new prints stand out and make a statement about who you are and what you want to say about yourself to the world,” said Williams. “I hope people will choose a print that speaks to them and then wear it however they want.”
