Street as the 'red carpet'
Fashionoffice was inspired by the idea 'Metropolitan Explorer', seen at the new fall/winter 2011/12 collection by G-Star and collected some pieces like an electric metro bike, sportive sunglasses,... for the daily 'red carpet' which is rolled out for city explorers everywhere, anytime.
Denim jeans and gilet over waxed dark blue jacket with 3D-elements from the 'Metropolitan Explorer'-collection by G-Star, FW2011/12. The collection is inspired by 1920's tailoring of city outfits and made of outdoor fabrics known from workwear. The combination elegant tailoring and outdoor utility fabrics is following G-Star's 'unexpected combinations' philosophy. The 3D elements on the jacket are another signature design of G-Star. The label took the inspiration already from the beginning on in 1996 from knee inserts on motorcyclist’s leather trousers.
