Junya Watanabe has built a formidable reputation in the world of menswear and archive fashion, and for perfectly justified reasons. While his collections for women are uniquely identifiable by their boundary-pushing explorations with material and shape, his approach to menswear is purposefully rooted in the ideas of workwear, uniform and utility. This subtle but observant foundation, paired with uncomplicated but thoughtful tailoring has made him one of the most consistently fascinating designers since the early 1990s.
For Fall 2021, Supreme has worked with the designer on a collection inspired by his own archives. The immediately evident references in some pieces just go to show how Watanabe's most iconic designs haven't lost their relevance and appeal a single bit in decades, and his popularity only continues to grow around the world.
The newly announced collaboration includes a GORE-TEX denim parka, a patchwork puffy jacket, a Schott® leather pea coat, cargo pants, work jacket, alongside t-shirts and accessories featuring original artwork by NYC-based artist BUGSEX. The collection will be available on November 4th.
