NEW YORK, Sep 26, 2010 / FW/ — The runway show took place at the Pier 94 exhibition space, perched over the Hudson River on the western side of midtown Manhattan on September 14th.

A single-stretch catwalk provided plenty of opportunity for guests to study the collection pieces. A large, wooden Arc Pant sculptural backdrop and recurring motif in the catwalk center carpet reinforced the 3D underpinnings of the collection.

It was a stunning front row with Alan Cumming, Magnus Carlsen and Liv Tyler attending, as the desert denim themed collection fused desert-inspired, functional details with a sandy-beige palette which was alternated with blue and black combinations and 3D-sculpted raw denim pieces.

This season, key pieces included the Kalahari Dress which combines a rigid and fitted, raw denim bodice with a free-flowing parachute-style bottom section to create something fresh and unexpected, underlining G-Star’s philosophy of combining contradictory elements.
