Junya Watanabe Denim Capsule Collection

I have been checking out the insane denim pieces from Junya Watanabe for quite a while now. Forbiddingly expensive, never before seen denim “artwork”, slouchy and anti fit jeans, denim dresses and denim skirts. They all speak to me! They are fun, different, and statement making. Whenever I go to Barney’s here in NYC, I make sure to pass by the designer 6th floor where they usually hang on the prestigious designer floor racks.

“I am not interested in the mainstream,” Junya Watanabe flatly told Dazed & Confused magazine in 2003. It was a masterpiece of understatement from this famously taciturn Japanese provocateur, whom Rei Kawakubo calls no less than one of her “co-combatants” in the “Comme des Garçons army” — the tactical fashion corps that has, season after season, systematically waged war on all conventions of beauty and propriety. Since 1992, when Kawakubo launched her disciple under the label Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons, this master of avant-garde deconstruction and reconstruction has been crafting some of the most challenging and technically ingenious visual acrobatics since Kawakubo herself stormed the fashion firmament in the 1980s with her starkly minimalist, ripped, and frayed black garments.”

Patchwork madness is on for 2014 Spring Summer season. Crave for this Junya Watanabe Women’s Patchwork Denim Jeans. They have a quilted flowers floral print, fringed tassel trim, ornamental print decorative art ethnic folk pattern, and destroyed ripped distressed look.

You can purchase Junya Watanabe denim here, here and here.
