Based in Japan, award winning designer Junya Watanabe, who studied under Comme des Garcons’ Rei Kawakubo, brings the innovative 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 Junya 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 the latest Junya Watanabe arrivals, including Skirts, tops and, dresses. The Junya Watanabe designs are distinctive for their 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. Chosen exclusively for the Australian luxury goods market by Parlour X, this thrilling collection strikes an exuberant note. 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. The avant-garde t-shirt dresses reference our cultural past, while the Junya Watanabe denim jeans and jackets are a wonderful example of giving everyday staples a stylish twist.
