G-STAR introduces its newest brand campaign starring the King of Afro-Fusion and Grammy award-winning artist; Burna Boy, a titanic figure currently making waves across the globe. Burna Boy is renowned for his groundbreaking music and impeccable fashion sense; a great match for G-STAR, with both the artist and the brand continually reinventing themselves as they forge their own paths.

The video for the collaboration features Burna Boy’s new song ‘On Form’. Shot in London and directed by the multi-award-winning director Dave Meyers, known for his famous music videos such as Kendrick Lamar, Travis Scott, Billie Eilish. The black-and-white aesthetic pays homage to G-STAR’s creative heritage, yet with a contemporary twist, and shows Burna Boy’s dance crew performing his singular ‘stomp’, spreading his infectious rhythm through the city. Burna Boy comments on the synergy of this collaboration, “Denim isn’t just fabric; it’s an extension of who I am. Like my music, it’s personal, a dialogue between me and myself. Every stitch, every fade tells a story. G-STAR gets that. They’re not about following trends; they’re about challenging norms, just like me. Our connection goes beyond fashion; it’s about pushing boundaries and embracing authenticity. So, why not ride the wave with G-STAR? It’s a match made in denim heaven.”

For Burna Boy’s Double Denim Edit, G-STAR designed two limited edition, premium Japanese denim looks for the Nigerian talent: an ultra-long denim military coat combined with a relaxed take on the iconic Elwood. And a hooded sleeveless statement jacket with matching loose jeans. The utilitarian looks are completed with the new leather Benson Lea Boots. Gwenda van Vliet, G-STAR’s CMO, notes that “we are proud to continue our legacy in working with the world’s biggest inspirational icons. Burna Boy is one of the most innovative artists of our time and the embodiment of today’s youth culture, challenging the norm in both style and music, a vision that is very close to our heart.”

For the film, Burna Boy’s dance crew is wearing the Spring 2024 collection, packed with new styles and durable essentials. With utilitarian origins running throughout, technical details meet strong silhouettes. It features two new jeans fits; The Bowey is a 3D women’s style, engineered to be the ultimate boyfriend fit. With a back panel twisted towards the front alongside an artfully bowed leg and loose feel. Lenney underlines that the 70’s are back. Low-rise and boot-cut, with a slight opening from the knee. In celebration of the campaign, G-STAR launches a range of monochrome graphic tees with a unisex fit, made from 100% organic cotton.

The campaign launches on the 19th of February 2024. Watch this space.
