Junya Watanabe Drop Crotch Pants

Highsnobette Junya3 540x480 Junya Watanabe Drop Crotch Pants

I’ll be the first to admit that drop croth pants can be hard to wear. While the consensus tends to be that the silhouette  suits mostly women with taller frames, I find proportion to be the key regarless of your height. Junya Watanabe’s drop crotch pants are flawlessly tailored, with menswear details that give them a little sternness. Wear the suspenders down to make the look more fun. See more images on the flip. They are available here.

BathroomElevatorShaft1 360x540 Bathroom With Glass Floor Over Elevator Shaft

This bathroom wonder is getting lots of circulation. It was designed in 2006 by Guadalajara-based architects Hernandez Silva Arquitectos, who decided to capitalize on a no-longer-in-use elevator shaft by building a penthouse bathroom on top of it, using a glass floor to expose the 15 floor drop.

Of course one immediately wonders, could I handle that first thing every morning? Even once? Scrub the floors weekly? Can’t help but wonder what the owners have to say about confronting that view six years later.
