ABOUT THE BRAND
After working for Comme des Garçons for eight years, Japanese designer Junya Watanabe established his own womenswear line under the Comme des Garçons umbrella. Watanabe focused his attentions to technologically advanced and synthetic style fabrics and textiles for what is commonly known as techno couture design – the creation of uniquely designed clothing with modern materials. Watanabe is well known as well for his use of finely tuned shape and tailoring in the style of his clothing. Known for deconstructing classic designs with juxtaposition, Watanabe will take apart things like white shirts or sweaters and then rebuild them with a single element into something entirely new and different.
