G-Star took over the Hammerstein Ballroom again this season, pulling off an elaborately choreographed feat of fashion stagecraft on an elaborately constructed runway flanked by celebrities (Lindsay Lohan, Taylor Momsen, Jared Leto, et al.). Models in all white denim emerged from behind scrims to plot their zigzagging, overlapping course through the theater—an army of tough, monochrome urbanites.

As always, G-Star is experimenting with the ways in which denim can be worn. A long white tuxedo jumpsuit with revealing slits cut up each side had a trompe l’oeil bolero in the brand’s signature fabric attached at the shoulders. Teeny-tiny denim bikini shorts would probably do best under a skirt (although they might offer Lady Gaga something to do her grocery shopping in). On the more pragmatic side, a fitted and flared blazer in a classic dark wash looked just right for right now.
