Junya Watanabe is yet another high end brand incorporating some good old Levi’s vintage vibes – among others. Actually, the whole S/S ’20 collection is a composite of brands, chosen for their authenticity – Carhartt, Gieves & Hawkes, New Balance, and, as mentioned above, Levi’s.
As aptly described, the collection is a “believable walking psychological profile of a creditable middle-aged male, casually exhibiting his advanced tastes for craftsmanship and higher intellectual pursuits in his wardrobe of excellently chosen workwear.”
Summing it up, t’s all about Watanabe’s usual string of collaborations weaving through the collection, with logos by everything from Canada Goose to Levi’s and Carhartt subtly peppering pieces.
The pointers to how environmentally aware Watanabe constructs his lifestyle were all there in the array of logos printed on the sustainable cloth bags which were being carried throughout the show.
