Comme des Garcons Junya Watanabe MAN lookbook featured on recent issue of SENSE magazine in Japan. The collection features a sporty and nautical theme using light colors with an abundant use of horizontal border stripes. Junya has been quoted saying, that was what he felt like wearing this summer. Fair enough!
If you recall, we saw a similar dominance of the stripe motif being used in Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2011 Women collection as well. The collection was overall much more feminine when compared to some previous spring collections by Junya and emphasized the lightness of the layering with light fabrics such as nylon and polyester. The Women’s collection runway show was really cool. White-masks-and-neon-wigs if I were to describe in a phrase.
