Inspired by the empty theatres, artists without a stage, and the dance of each individual to find their way in the new normal. The 1.5 meter society is expressed in a special choreography with as center piece an impressive denim tutu with a diameter of 3 meters.

“Restrictions offer new opportunities,” says Gwenda van Vliet, Chief Marketing Officer, G-Star. “Over the past few months, we have been looking for ways to interpret current reality in an unexpected, artistic and innovative way. We focus on what is possible instead of impossible. And that’s what creates collaborations and concepts that wouldn’t otherwise arise. We are proud of this beautiful story of timeless denim, dance, music and craftmanship from different worlds”.
