Under Junya Watanabe, the ordinary becomes extraordinary. The label is at fashion’s forefront, constantly innovating with intelligent designs and through the use of cutting-edge technologies and fabrications.
Japanese-born Junya Watanabe started out as an apprentice pattern maker at Comme des Garçons, working alongside the legendary Rei Kawakubo. The designer pulled inspiration from Kawakubo’s sculptural approach, launching his own eponymous brand with a more practical and re-worked spin. Watanabe’s work is refreshing, rarely referential to fashion’s past, and conceptually unique.
