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.

JWCDGRaincoat 540x405 Junya Watanabe Comme Des Garcons Cape Raincoat

April showers have little power when you’re prepared with a bad ass raincoat. Just when we thought this season’s hottest item, the trench, couldnt be re-interperted with any more originality, the master of clothing oragami Junya Watanabe, in partnership with Comme Des Garcons offers a totaly new shape. A hybrid trench/cape with no side closure that uses an adjustable button strap to wrap the body. The khacki is completely waterproof with taped seams allow for no penetration from outside elements.

The navy version is executed in a tropical weight wool which drapes and moves with the fluidity of a light spring jacket. Either option is sure to reign supreme as the coolest trench on the market alongside going down in history as a ground breaking evolution in design. All styles available at Riccardi.

 Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2009 He Saw The Beauty !!!

I remember going to school in the morning and seeing the flower merchants walking down the hills of Bourdon with huge baskets of flowers on their heads.The sight of these women dressed in mis-matched clothes carrying on the heads gravity defiying amounts of flowers held a beauty   and a strength in my eyes.

There is beauty in survival and strength and I loved  that Junya Watanabe chose to Illustrate it in his Spring 09 show. Having partly  grown up in a country who has become the poster child  of  poverty  for the western hemisphere, I find that the beauty and strenght of the people, especially the women often gets overlooked ….See the full amazing,very real show here courtesy of Style.
