Fashion designer David Laport combines his expressive designs with the denim expertise of G-Star RAW to collaborate on the capsule collection Denim After Dark, consisting of a Haute Couture dress and a ready-to-wear top. Both designs will feature Laport’s signature pleats and sculptural design in denim.

Denim After Dark

G-Star’s belief that there is no limit to what denim can do, led to the collaboration with David Laport. The unexpected pairing came from the potential to make a true statement with a contrast between G Star’s raw aesthetic and Laport’s delicate creations.

Couture replaces the casual

Leveraging the DNA of G-Star, Laport created a fashion forward dress that highlights contemporary couture design. Created in premium Japanese selvedge denim and tulle, the short dress epitomises  festive evening wear, where volume meets sophistication alongside intricate details. Handcrafted in Italy, Laport’s signature pleating technique features throughout the garment.

Following this, the ready-to-wear piece is a wearable translation of the couture dress. The pleated  bow-top makes for a strong but feminine style, perfect for the woman who dares to make a statement. Also created in premium Japanese selvedge denim with tulle, the classic bow will be reconstructed into a modern evening wear staple.
