In men’s, the “Desert Denim” theme of G-Star’s collection meant khaki pants and jackets with elaborate seaming details, panel constructions and zipper embellishments — topped off with a cinematic take on Foreign Legion hats. The sculptural nature of the line, such as in the Gobi pant with a voluminous leg and enlarged pockets, was accentuated by a stage set that featured a looming, abstract backdrop of a G-Star jean in blond lumber. But while raw, stiff denim is the brand’s signature, it sometimes looked uncomfortable to wear and one model looked particularly wooden when kitted up in rigid denim with a leather bag-cum-fanny pack that resembled an awkward bustle.
