G-Star RAW Revives the Racing Jacket
The racing jacket is back with a vengeance. As the Y2K revival continues to accelerate onwards, styles from that era such as the motor jacket, take a turn into 2022 as key fashion-forward pieces. Now, G-Star RAW takes inspiration from the technical racing jackets in their latest collection.
Race ahead in G-Star’s premium designs
The high-end designs were given a modern update alongside a nostalgic feel. Inspired by the Dakar rally, the styles have a desert-inspired color palette and functional elements, ready for the season. Key items include the white leather jackets for both men and women. The elaborate designs are from G-Star RAW’s Exclusives Collection which showcases the limitless creativity of the brand.
The journey of the racing jacket
Racing suits have been popular sportswear attire since the 1950s. But it wasn’t until the early 00’s that the trend for racing jackets was really ignited by celebrities. The stand-out designs have always made a statement with features such as boxy shoulder pads, zip detailing and excess pockets. And still, the staple piece is ever present in 2022 with G-Star’s motor jackets leading the way.
