Junya Watanabe Man Menswear A/W11

The shy Japanese designer showed a stellar collection of knitted jackets in his usual casual style

The wild and wonderful creativity of Comme des Garcons' Junya Watanabe was yesterday morning channelled in a strong and focused collection. Even his famous soft tailoring came in a knitted fabric, often with shawl collars. Contrast coloured pockets and an intricate yet simply beautiful pattern added to the equation. To the tunes, or words rather, of Woody Allen chatting up Diane Keaton, we saw Japanese interpretations of standard duffel coats, knitted baseball and donkey jackets in red grey and navy blue. Also the shoes were clever takes on classics such as the desert boot, thick soled Timberland deck shoes, penny loafers and brogues. Except for all the excellent knitwear jacket, we also saw the classic Watanabe/Comme washed wool fabrics; a true pleasure!
