Junya Watanabe


Junya has created a traveling mans collection, one that Wes Anderson would be very at home with. This beautifully curated presentation of suiting from Watanabe was a true treat. So traditional and classically inspired yet so modern and relevant all in the same breath. The colors and fabrics were fantastic, the proportions and fits even more so. The models could have kept walking right off the cat walk and on to a train car to Eastern Asia the looks screamed versatility and comfort, very well done and made it all look easy. Oh by the way many of the jackets were reversible. Watanabe did this in such a way that it was a real kick in the teeth as if they weren't good enough the first time around the jackets were tremendous inside out. Well played Mr. Watanabe.
