Australian-born industrial designer Marc Newson is well known for re-configuring just about every aspect of our world, from bikes to aircraft, furniture, cookware, appliances, restaurants and most recently, clothing for G-Star RAW. His 


techniques, which employ smooth flowing lines, translucency and transparency have even earned him Commander of of the Order of the British Empire ranking and landed him on


Magazine's 100 Most Influential People in the World list. Oh, he also races his vintage Aston Martin, Lamborghini, Ferrari and basically what we're saying is, he's the closest to a real life James Bond as we're gonna get.

The latest news from Newson is that he's teamed up again with G-Star Raw, and the second collaboration between these two purveyors of cool will be released in November. The new collection includes Black and RAW selvedge denim, Varsity jackets, industrial dark denim outerwear and our personal favorite, the Quilted Overshirt. This lightweight garment features a streamlined fit like that of a shirt but the warmth of a jacket. Its deerskin leather elbow patches and accents pair well with the ripstop nylon. This piece employs the popular silhouette of a bomber jacket but with all of its accoutremants and high-end design, leaves the option to dress it either up or down depending on where you're headed.
