Tricker’s x Comme des Garcons Junya Watanabe MAN Wingtip Sneaker


Comme des Garcons have teamed up again with Tricker’s to great effect with the stand out designer Junya Watanabe working on another great rendition of this wingtip sneaker. Not for the first time have we seen this model come out, although this fall we can enjoy a new pallet of colors applied to the 4-hole wingtip suede design. With the classic welted sole replaced with a white rubber tennis sneaker styled sole it makes for a more subdued look

Junya Watanabe x Mackintosh Fireman Jacket

We rarely dream about collaborations anymore. Most of the ones we hoped would happen have done just that. The rest have been executed with such varying degrees of success that we’ve become a little gunshy. No such fears when we first heard the words ‘Junya’ and ‘Mackintosh’ though.

This Junya Watanabe Fair Isle Wool and Leather Jacket combines the classic American varsity with knit sweater Fair Isle patterns. The jacket has a red body made from 100% wool, cream sleeves made of 100% cow leather, a brown button closure, and a striped ribbed collar, cuffs and bottom hem. All in all a nice twist on the varsity.

Junya Watanabe MAN Hooded Field Coat

Love this coat from Junya Watanabe MAN’s Winter 2011 collection. A classic Hooded Field Coat reinterpreted for by the Japanese designer in his signature style. A mix of Flannel, Drill Cotton and Leather with function at the heart of the design.

 

New Balance x Comme des Garcons eYe Junya Watanabe

New Balance has provided Junya Watanabe a great platform in recent seasons and this latest project is one of the finest I have seen to date. The New Balance x Comme des Garcons eYe Junya Watanabe 996 features the same vintage effect the designer applied to the collection he created with Nike a while ago that sparked great hysteria. The otherwise very neutral design on the 996 model makes for a compelling release.

 

Junya Watanabe x Mackintosh Modscoat

Junya Watanabe also worked with Mackintosh as part of his Winter 2010 Collection. The Modscoat comes in black and in khaki and is a functional, yet not over-equipped, winter jacket. Available from the usual Watanabe outlets
