Paris Fashion Week: Junya Watanabe Fall 2011/2012 Menswear
Japenese fashion designer Junya Watanabe presented his Fall 2011/2012 collection during this years Paris fashion week. Junya is known for designing innovative and distinctive clothing. He's also well-known for incorporating synthetic and technologically advanced fabrics and textiles like using waterproof fabric and glow-in the dark fiber in his well-tailored blazers and suits. In April 2009, First Lady Michelle Obama wore a blue-patterned cardigan designed by Watanabe on a visit to the Royal Opera House during her and President Barack Obama's trip to London.
Junya Watanabe’s collection Fall/Winter 2011/2012 menswear collection featured tailored blazers, tweed pants and lumberjack themed winter jackets. I can see the Williamsburg’s hipsters already styled head to toe in his warm separates. Junya has slightly refined American rugged style; this is 2011 Hipster at his best.
Stand out pieces included tailored fair isle sweater blazers with fitted rolled up jeans or tweed pants; hooded patched wool jackets, a black leather buttoned down jacket with suede patches, duffle leather jackets and cotton sailor jacket with fair isle prints. For the urbane man who likes a touch of edge in his closet, I highly suggest checking out Junya Watanabe’s Fall 2011 collection.
