First Look: G-Star RAW Latest Jumpsuit Collection

G-Star RAW collaborates with Dutch National Ballet dancers Michaela DePrince and Kira Hilli for their latest jumpsuit campaign. The dancers literally showed their flexibility in a collection of bold one-pieces. The garments give the body the flexibility it demands. No matter what. Times are changing, but the jumpsuit is here to stay.

The new range of jumpsuits is inspired by workwear, like permanent-press uniforms and vintage Swedish army shirts. By adjusting the snap buttons or the waist belt you enhance the feminine form and shape the casual fit of the jumpsuits.

Short Sleeve Workwear Jumpsuit – Pitch Black R3600.00

This jumpsuit has a straight fit that tapers at the legs, creating a timeless silhouette. A tonal patched pocket at the cuff adds an interesting detail, while a contrast-colour belt adds focus and definition at the waist.

Short Sleeve Workwear Jumpsuit – Westpoint Khaki R3900.00

This jumpsuit - made from a crisp khaki twill - is inspired by permanent-press uniforms. The straight fit tapers at the legs, creating a timeless silhouette.

E Aero Straight Jumpsuit - Acid Orange R5299.00

This boldly coloured flight-overall of 100% recycled polyester is a meeting of past and future with classically neat lie-flat pockets based on a 1940’s paratrooper jacket and the latest compact ‘memory’ fabric.

The jumpsuits are available online at g-star.com.
