G Star Raw launches at Melbourne's Emporium.

Friday 28th November saw the launch of G Star Raw at Melbourne's Emporium; the newest, glamest shopping emporium in town. 

The new store features musical genius Pharrell's debut collection, RAW For The Ocean, which sees recycled plastics turned into denim, hats, sweats, jackets and more. 

As you can see, everyone was pretty 'happy' about the launch of the new collection and the sleek new space.

...Sorry, couldn't resist.
