Junya Watanabe Clip Jacket

—01. Corduroy and leather accents.
—02. Button and clip fasteners.

Words

So let's get this out of the way: this jacket is expensive, relatively elaborate in both design and detail, and certainly not for everyone. However this particular Junya Watanabe collection was well received by many following its original showing back in January, and it's been interesting to see which pieces stores that carry the brand have chosen to bring in this season. The Army Green Clip Jacket is perhaps one of the most wearable pieces from the current Fall line, offering an easy-on-the-eyes colour combination, combined with some appealing details in the fastenings and closures. Yes it costs a pretty-penny, and no I probably won't ever purchase an item of clothing in this price range, but it's still fun to imagine a bottomless pit of a wallet now and again, and what you might do with it given half the chance.

Junya Watanabe MAN x Laboureur Check Jacket

01

Info

—01. Made in France.

Words

Junya and Laboureur team up again for the fall after a successful spring sub-collection within the Junya Wantanabe line. The simplicity of the French work wear brand offers a nice canvas for a rather restrained piece. Simple, easy to wear and fills your lumberjack quota for the fall.

Junya Watanabe Stripe Pants

—01. Light weight summer pants.

Words

"A pinstripe cotton work pant with cinch back by Junya Watanbe Man. Due to the looser cut legs, these pants will be most comfortable in warm climates. The best look - with rolled up legs."

Junya Watanabe Beach Shorts

—01. Large front pockets and nice pocket bags.

Words

If you recently got your tax refund back and don't know where to spend it all at once, I might have found the thing for you. These summer beach shorts from Junya Watanabe look great. Both blues are very nice, the details are great and there doesn't seem to be anything too wild about the design, just the price. If you have a couple spare shillings to spend, they might just be the perfect pair of shorts this season.

Junya Watanabe Man

—01. Interior of the yarn dyed cotton blazer.

Words

The Junya Watanabe spring collection offers a rather paired down offering compared to the past few seasons, at least from the exterior. The collection features a great palette of blues, khaki, stripes and checks. While the pieces are still definitively Junya, they work well into almost any wardrobe and offer something unique to these basic styles.

Junya Watanabe x Mackintosh

—01. Hooded trench and fishtail parka.

Words

There isn't much that needs to be said about either of these brands. They both bring a lot to the table and I feel like these pieces are very well done. They're functional, they have some great subtle details, the colors are perfect and though the price is high, pieces like this are built to last.

Junya Watanabe Duck/Hide Jacket

01

Images

—01. Made in Japan.

Words

Junya Watanabe MAN has started hitting non-CDG retailers and has become notably more visible this season. End has received their order and have just put this work wear styled jacket online. Some might think that Junya takes the reference too far and makes it unwearable, but in this case I think it's been reeled in just enough. The colors of the cotton canvas, flannel and leather combine to create an amazing autumnal palette. The fabrics work together nicely and I think the end result is a pretty fine garment.
