G-Star Raw was set up in 1989 in Amsterdam. It is a brand that has a strong, young urban aesthetic and is particularly well known for its raw denims, which are unwashed and untreated. The brand has a number of celebrity followers and has also collaborated with music producer Pharell Williams on a denim line made from recycled plastic. The shorts line from G-Star Raw includes many looks that are made from the brand's signature denim, including denim boyfriend shorts, high-waisted denim shorts and under the knee cropped styles. There are also non-denim offerings, including khakis and cargo shorts, as well as smart tailored designs.
