The watchmaker Casio G-shock launched their first Dutch collaboration with menswear label OntFront. The young label was picked by Casio G-shock because it represents Dutch fashion and cutting edge street style in one. Casio challenged OntFront to design a tough and rugged G-shock that equally represents the refined character of OntFront. OntFront designer Liza Koifman chose to work with the GA-110C with analog and digital elements. The firm and tough watch is matte anthracite and the wristband is covered with a pixelated snake skin print and OntFront logo. Only 50 pieces will be manufactured in Japan and all watches will be numbered and engraved by hand. The watch will be sold exclusively at the OntFront store in Amsterdam and Gorilli in Rotterdam, starting from October.

At the previous AIFW edition they presented their fifth collection named “Shift Gear“. After the runway show they wanted to do something more and came with a moving editorial. The futuristic Amsterdam has been used as background for the animation where the models symbolize the theme of the collection: fast cars like Lamborghini and Spyker.

“I always loved the esthetic’s from car design. Spyker, Lamborghini… the lines and aerodynamic shape of the fast cars have been the base for the fifth collection.” says Liza Koifman.
The basic colours were very dark such as ‘asphalt’ anthracite and ‘rubber’ black with eggplant and red as accent colours. The fabrics are from Italy and France. Next to the traditional fabrics they also used water-resistant fabrics.
The collection has 68 pieces; from coats, t-shirts, jeans, shirts till unique blazers all very stylish. Just like the previous Fashion Week we at Fesjon also liked this collection it’s really fashion forward.
