THE GOOD HEART
Raw for the Oceans is a collaborative project between G-Star Raw, Parley for the Oceans and Bionic Yarn.
Parley for the Oceans collaborates between creative industries, brands, and environmentalists to end destruction of our oceans.
Nautical inspiration runs through the collection, including a Breton stripe pattern using the initiative's octopus mascot.
This season, jeans and jackets made from the world's first denim from recycled ocean plastic are distressed and patched.
The project, now in the third season, has transformed more than 2 million plastic containers recovered from coastlines into high quality denim.
Raw for the Oceans collection for Autumn/Winter '15 is now at Capitol Piazza and Paragon Shopping Centre.
