Designer Inspiration-Junya Watanabe

Junya Watanabe

High street clothing is generally inspired by catwalk collections that top designers have previously created for shows in Paris, Milan, London etc. I have recently been researching the conceptual designer Junya Watanabe the protege of Comme des Garcon's founder, (Rei Kawakubo).I have researched many different areas of his work focusing mainly on his ready to wear collections.

Browns London
Watanabe is exclusively stocked in only two locations in the UK ;Browns and Dover Street Market.I recently visited Browns on South Molton street London and managed to take a couple of discreet photos of Watanabes ready to wear Autumn/Winter 09 collection! The clothing featured below is from the discount store (Browns for Less) and from one of Watanbe's past collections.
