Japanese fashion designer Junya Watanabe began his career working for the exciting and nonconforming label Comme des Garçons, soon launching his own line for the Comme des Garçons brand. Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons was established in 1992, beginning with womenswear and expanding into menswear in 2000.
Always innovative and experimental, Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons is distinctive and contemporary. Its designs feature modern and technical fabrics, structured shapes and deconstructed tailoring to produce unique collections. Unexpected silhouettes are created which challenge what is expected in fashion and design, seen in slouchy trousers, asymmetric cuts and exaggerated elements. While avant-garde in approach, Junya Watanabe remains wearable, offering graphic tees, patchwork jeans and oversize jackets. Statement pieces are of course eye-catching, such as harness-detailed leather jackets and fully sequined dresses. Bold prints and interesting textures add an intriguing edge to trousers, shorts and bags, while logo-patched sneakers are understated, working perfectly for the everyday. As part of the Comme des Garçons label, Junya Watanabe is consistently forward-thinking and new collections never fail to excite.
Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons can be found online through the Dover Street Market site, as well as through Farfetch and Matches Fashion.
