Go to work in your jeans


This is something a little different for my blog but its such a great collaboration its well worth sharing. After all the modern day gentleman takes pride in more than what he wears, but he takes pride in where he lives and where he works too

Below is what happens when one of the worlds biggest fashion houses gets into the pants of one of the worlds foremost furniture companies to update a range of original designs by Jean Prouvé for use in their office.

If you can’t tell by the look already this is none other than G-Star Raw who decided to pay homage to Prouvé’s collection of furniture designed for the offices of French industrial companies in the 1940s.

The collection consists of 10 pieces, including chairs, desks, tables, cabinets, desk lamps and wall-mounted reading lights, were initially developed for G-Star RAW’s new headquarters in Amsterdam, which opened last year.

G-Star RAW and Vitra worked with Prouvé’s family to update the designs, developing a new palette of materials and coloured finishes. All the pieces are made from either steel, solid timber or a combination of the two. The rest, as they say, is history!

WOW! Never mind my office I could have this stuff all over my apartment!

Following the launch in Milan, the collection will be available from G-Star RAW’s website and at $2000 a pop, you might wanna start saving.
