Interview with Liv Tyler

Joe: How does it feel to be the face of G-STAR for this year's A/W collection?
Liv: I feel really lucky, we just watched a rehearsal of the show downstairs, I was sitting in the theatre by myself and it was empty and I just had this overwhelming feeling of being lucky to be here an to be part of it. It's nice because you see a lot of high fashion and then a lot of accessories and things you collect but it was so nice to see the collection because it has such a specific look and not necessarily high fashion which I liked a lot - it was very cool.

How was shooting the campaign?
I like Anton Corbin a lot. I worked with him once when i was 17, we did some crazy pictures for a German magazine called Stern, he also made the movie 'CONtrOL' which is very cool, you would like it a lot, it's a black and white movie about Joy Division, anyway, I love shooting with him.

I like your hat, can I wear it?
yes, yes. It's G-Star.
It's amazing, is your whole look G-STAR? You seriously look like you just walked off the catwalk. Except your not in blue.

What do you like about G-STAR?
Everything. I like that you think of jeans but they have a whole little world they have in Holland and they are very passionate about what they do. it's not just about jeans or selling clothing it's a sort of philosophy and a way of life, I think it's really cool and I like it. Using the raw fabrics, very strong. What I'm secretly obsessed with, when I go to the show room, is they have all these hats, these amazing Winter hats. I have one in the other room. Whenever i go to the showroom I walk out with all these scarves and hats.

What do you expect from this year's collection?
I just watched the rehearsal and one of things I really liked were the colors, I wasn't expecting that. And the 'all in ones', like the guy wears at the gas station? They're one of my favorite things to wear.

Have you been to Tokyo?
Yeah, I've been there for movie promotions a few times, I really love Tokyo, it's a fun city. There's so much snow in New York right now - I've haven't experienced snowy Tokyo yet.
