Based in Japan, designer Junya Watanabe, who studied under Comme des Garcons’ Rei Kawakubo, brings the avant-garde flavour of Tokyo to each of his awe-inspiring collections. His conceptual work uses a variety of unorthodox fabrics, some of which are spliced together to create deconstructed garments that are more reminiscent of works of art than mere pieces of clothing. Yet Watanabe does not ignore clean-lines wardrobe staples when designing his shows. He’s renowned for taking classics such as the trench coat and subverting them with embellishment or unusual cuts in order to create totally new and highly influential designs.
Shop Junya Watanabe for muted colours brightened up by splashes of primary tones and check prints that remind us of the bon vivant’s early days as a patternmaker at Comme des Garcons.

Command attention in structured pieces with a futuristic approach or look to the past with classic cuts and punk-inspired check prints from the designer who often infuses his work with more than a nod to this era.
