Junya Watanabe’s MAN collection has some amazing pieces for this season. In addition, he has a gorgeous jean out from his brilliant ongoing collaboration with Levi’s called the Printed Jean available now at TR??S BIEN SHOP.
Let’s be honest, so many designers have done collaborations with Levi’s, but in my opinion, Watanabe outshines the rest. If you are willing to drop a cool $762 for a pair of jeans, I would go for these over the “inspired by” replica of Levi’s vintage 501′s that Evisu is coming out with.
Junya Watanabe X Levi’s – Printed Jeans, $762.00
Printed denim jeans from Junya Watanabe x Levi’s. These lightweight thin denim jeans have a low rise, drop crotch, and relaxed fit. The back of the pants is a standard pair of Levi’s 501 but the front is made from a super soft, thin cotton fabric printed on the front with the trompe d’oeil image of a pair of distressed jeans. The entire pants is lined with a striped oxford cotton that shows when you roll up. They feature contrast white stitching, belt loops, streamlined five pockets, and a zip fly. Comes in Small, Medium and Large. Made in Japan.
Junya Watanabe MAN – Gingham Checked Shirt, $452.00
Straight fitted shirt from Junya Watanabe in an amazingly soft gingham checked cotton. White contrast collar and cuffs and rounded hem. The buttons are slightly larger than a standard button for a more special look. Made in Japan.
Junya Watanabe X Tricker’s – Semi Brogue, $650.00 (picture with the Printed Jeans)
This is not the first time Watanabe San teams up with UK shoe masters Tricker’s but that does not matter at all. The collaboration keeps getting better and better for every season. Here’s a super chunky half brogue in soft calf leather and red leather lining. Goodyear commando sole and metal eyelets. Very limited numbers on this one. Delivers with dust bag and a can of Tricker’s shoe polish.
Junya Watanabe MAN – Waistcoat, $791.00
Looks like denim but is actually made in all wool. Tight fit and pockets on the outside. Flip it around and wear it with the red and white gingham on the outside. Made in Japan.
