This year G-Star RAW and ELLE South Africa are celebrating 20 years of ELLE SA and the iconic G-Star RAW Elwood. To celebrate this, ELLE x G-Star RAW invited you to get creative!
First introduced in 1996, Head Designer Pierre Morisset pioneered the G-Star 3D denim approach to construction as he sought to recreate the jeans of a passing motorcyclist, which had moulded to his legs from longtime exposure to the elements. 20 years later and 3D denim is now a method of construction known for being G-Star’s trademark.
We asked you to redesign the G-Star RAW Elwood, the iconic 3D constructed jeans and we received some incredible entries. Here we announce the twenty best designs who will each WIN a pair of G-Star RAW Elwoods, valued at R2 499 each*
See all the winning designs below!
