More Musings Fall 2010: Junya Watanabe

Junya Watanabe straight destroyed the last three seasons. Your honor, if it please the court, a sampling:

The defense rests. There's way more (and better) at GQ for my readers that aren't familiar. Do yourself a favor.

For the AW 2010 show in Paris, he dialed back some of his eccentricity to present a fully wearable collection. I would wear every single piece in this collection. Yes, including the ascots.

I love:
  • the perfect coat lengths
  • the contrast soles
  • the simple play on classics, never overdoing it
  • Red Beard the M.F. Pirate

But that's not all--Junya's a busy man. He recently released a line of 100 Carhartt jackets that he purchased at their store and altered personally. I love how he's clearly having a little fun with the workwear crowd, but I'm sure they won't mind when the results look this great.

Do you guys know that Jared reads your blog religiously? Like, he has it bookmarked and everything. He's most into Mike's posts? Did you also know that he loves Carhartt? (His family is from North Dakota, after all) He probably swooned over these custom Carhartt jackets though he would probably never leave a comment about it.
