Magnus Carlsen for G-Star
12 Jul. 2010
G-STAR UNVEILS FALL ADS WITH MAGNUS CARLSEN AND LIV TYLERThe Dutch denim lifestyle brand G-Star has unveiled its latest campaign shot by photographer Anton Corbijn and featuring the unlikely pairing of Norwegian chess prodigy, Magnus Carlsen, and previous brand ambassador Liv Tyler.
A grandmaster by the age of 13 and in 148 days, Carlsen was chosen for his uncompromising approach to the game that mirrors G-Star's own rigorous design process. Accordingly, Tyler embodies the modern G-Star woman's combination of toughness and controlled sensuality.
To support the new ad campaign, G-Star will travel to the Cooper Square Hotel in New York City on September 10, 2010 to host The RAW World Chess Challenge (RWCC). The challenge affords everyday consumers and chessmasters the opportunity to play with Carlsen, together at once and live on the Internet. Carlsen v. The World will bring together three chess grandmasters, including Maxime Vachier-Lagrave from France, Hikaru Nakamura from the United States, and Judit Polgár from Hungary, who will suggest a move each to the registered public. The public can then vote online for their move to be played against Carlsen. Renowned chess grandmaster Maurice Ashley, the world’s first African-American chess player to reach this status, will provide live commentary on the RAW World Chess Challenge, while chess icon Garry Kasparov will participate as the official ambassador of the tournament.
