Junya Watanabe MAN FW19 Preview


As consistent as always, Junya Watanabe presented his Junya Watanabe MAN FW19 collection in Paris earlier this month. This collection features typical Watanabe attributes, with nods towards menswear and utilitarianism and the use of engineered textiles. Watanabe’s inclination to urban practicality rings true in this collection, with a range of jackets, layerables and shirts that seamlessly fall in line with mens’ fashion without the need to be ostentatious. Typical panelled constructions are seen throughout the collection, with contrasting and complementary patterns, textiles and knits. Well-tailored tweed sports coats are complemented with knit Fair Isle sleeves, while rugged denim jeans hide twill linings and leather gusseting. Most noticeably, the models in this runway show reflect Watanabe’s own age, forcing an appreciation for the style of the modern, dapper gentleman. Additionally, collaborations with such brands as Canada Goose and New Balance augment Watanabe’s attention to the everyman. Look for select pieces from the collection to deliver at HAVEN in the coming weeks and shop HAVEN’s current selection below.
