Dutch clothing company G-Star Raw opened a new location in Dupont Circle a few weeks ago, bringing its fashionable line of "raw denim" items for men and women to the District. G-Star is a single-brand store, meaning the location only carries its own line of jeans, jackets, shirting, bags and wallets.
Raw denim is material that hasn't been treated or washed after being dyed, and will have a tendency to bleed on its first wash.
The concept is becoming hugely popular, since raw denim tends to meld with the wearer after a few months.
G-Star's urban apparel is influenced by a military look, and will have features such as zippered arm pockets on jackets and vests with buckles and straps. The D.C. store is only the tenth G-Star Raw establishment to open in the U.S.
