Junya Watanabe COMME des GARCONS MAN 2012 Spring/Summer Lookbook
After taking numerous glimpses into the monthly installments from Junya Watanabe COMME des GARCONS MAN, TheNextDoor gives us a comprehensive look via its Spring/Summer 2012 lookbook. Boasting the same affinity for understated hues, detailed patchwork and well-fit tailoring, the range sees Watanabe making use of menswear blazers, sleeveless down vests, button-up shirts and heritage parka outerwear options. Aside from the notable exterior embellishments of each piece, the range also sees meticulously detailed interior pockets, lining and layers of patterned materials. The Junya Watanabe COMME des GARCONS MAN 2012 spring/summer collection is now available through TheNextDoor.
Junya Watanabe COMME des GARCONS MAN collection
Hailed as ‘techno couture’, Junya mixes the traditional with the contemporary, the natural with the synthetic – to create collections that are vastly different from season to season. Although littered with the hallmarks of Kawakubo’s influence, the MAN label has it’s own, very distinct look and feel, with irregular touches such as random folding, pleats and patches mixed with strong, bold patterning and traditional silhouettes. The strong sense of tradition adds a grounding touch of humility and respect of heritage to a collection that is otherwise outlandish, making every unfaltering piece from the collection instantly wearable. - Endclothing
Junya Watanabe COMME des GARCONS MAN 2012 Fall/Winter Collection
Presenting yet another strong lineup of countryside-inspired clothing for Fall/Winter 2012 is Junya Watanabe for COMME des GARCONS MAN. The forthcoming collection is another testament to Watanabe’s ability to rework a variety of classic styles and workwear pieces with his chic and contemporary commonsense. Seemingly building on the success of last season, Watanabe shows progression with a more matured aesthetic and tasteful color preference via a range of suit jackets, functional parkas, double-breasted coats, denim jackets and work pants. Attention to detail was paid with the inclusion of embroidered patches, chromatic tartans, and contrast stitching.
