In my eyes Junya Watanabe is the king of collaborations(while we’re on the subject), its by no means all he does in order to bring his brand above the rest, but what he does do alongside others is done with the best in mind. I was lucky enough to hear Watanabe speak some years back about his first collaboration with Levi’s, his thoughts around the decision to make the capsule range were simply based on the fact that he wanted to design denim, and wanted to do it the best way possible, and who else does it better than Levi’s. It’s obvious this mindset hasn’t changed for the Japanese designer, teaming up this season once again with Levi’s, Trickers, The North Face and Pendleton, each the leader in their field, but allowing Junya Watanabe to create the outdoor inspired collection he so desired. The collection is show here with an obviously inspired fashion editorial by Sense.
