BurdaStyle Backstage at G-Star from Lindsey Ibarra on Vimeo.

Last week Nora and I headed over to Pier 94 to attend the Spring 2011 G-Star presentation. Check out our backstage interview with women’s designer Rebecca Bach and get a first hand look at what goes down before the models hit the runway!

Known for their progressive, sporty designs, G-Star has set themselves apart from the over-run denim market with forward thinking silhouettes, washes and treatments. For Spring, Bach brought a little bit of the desert into the G-Star look with bright whites and military khakis, which provided a nice contrast to some of the super-saturated denims.

G-Star Spring 2011

And check this out, we brought this fantastic tote back from the show to give away to one lucky BurdaStyler. Just comment and let us know what your favorite denim clothing item is and this amazing G-Star bag could be all yours!

    Don’t know if i am too late, my favorite denim wear are jeans. You can have/make it in so different styles and you can combine them with nearly everything. I am just working on my first jenas.

    My favorite denim is always jean pants. So many different shades, and always so many different ways to wear them.

    G-Star Raw looks are urban and tough, but there are enough gentle and elegant touches to their pieces that make them awesome! The bag is truly unique. Simple. Beautiful!. Just like jeans, I can think of so many different ways to use this bag (and what to wear it with!).

    fave denim item ever – Levis 501 button-fly jeans. Current fave – the jeans that are realllllly worn in well, soft, almost threadbare, comfy. No style to speak of, but you asked about fave, not prettiest…

    And as a construction material, it can’t be surpassed – body and weight, as well as strength. Yet its quite easy to manage with the right tools. Love it.

    Nice bag. Very pretty, would compliment the most horrifically worn pair of jeans or newest trendy skirt equally well. Very nice bag.

    My favorite denim item are my boyfriends slim fit skinny jeans. I love them because they’re baggy in the butt area but they fit nicely on the leg. It’s good for me because I like the baggy pants look. I usually pair them with my favorite pair of high top sneakers (they’re a rust colored leather), a cut-off shirt and beanie. I love G-Star but I can’t afford it. :(

    Denim jeans is my favorite clothing, I wear them almost every day. When I have a good one that fits, it is hard to find a new jeans that fit as well as the old one.

    Meu jeans favorito foi vestido até quando começou a desgastar em partes impróprias. Não pude largá-lo, então continuo a usá-lo, mas sob um novo desenho: virou a minha bolsa preferida, com os mesmos bolsos e cós!

    My favorite denim item has to be my dark denim jacket. It matches with almost anything. It really goes great with maxi dresses or long skirts!

    I have a pair of jeans that I have been wearing no less than 8 years. It’s that one pair that are worn in so perfectly that it’s hard to imagine ever replacing them. I’ve even patched up the knees with denim hearts to make them last just a bit longer.

    my favorite denim is jeans. Jeans just seem to complete every look and can go from casual to dressy. They are usually cheap, versatile, and comfy.

    Whilst I haven’t worn a pair of jeans in forever I do have this wonderful denim jacket with a leather yoke and cuffs that cost me all of $5 at a thrift store [a holy place for the obtaining of wonderful garments, fabrics and accessories].

    My favorite denim piece is a traditionally-styled jean jacket. I’m XL (tho not plus) and this jacket makes me look tiny! Whether or not jean jackets are ‘in’ I love this jacket and it’s still de rigueur in this part of the world so I’ll wear it for another season—and that purse would look great with it!

    My favorite denim clothing item is a 3/4 sleeve denim jacket from the Banana Republic outlet. I have had it for about 3 years and still wear it once a week. It seems to go with everything, both dressy and casual transcending easily from day to night.

    My favorite denim item is, predictably, my jeans. They can be casual or semi-formal or anything else, really!

    G-Star’s presentation of denim is very creative. The 3-D adds layering and texture, but it’s put together in a way that does not look bulky. Thanks for posting the video!
