Junya Watanabe, a former student of Comme des Garçons designer Rei Kawakubo, started his career as a pattern-maker for CDG which led to a quick promotion to chief designer of the Tricot line, followed by CDG Homme. Fast forward to the designer's first Paris presentation in 1993, Watanabe begins his own line under the label named Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons. Since the brand's founding, it has become renowned for its avant-garde craftsmanship and cutting-edge fabrics, original tailoring, and complex draping experimentation.
For Delivery 1 of Fall '19, the brand continues with graphic t-shirts featuring culinary delights around the world in Japanese-based pure cotton and a collegiate inspired UCLA t-shirt in a heavyweight poly cotton jersey. To conclude the assortment, there are two collaborative denim pants with Carhartt WIP and Levi's.
Junya Watanabe MAN Fall '19 is now available in-store, online and via our EB App.
