Where the runway meets the street

Junya Watanabe got together with Vanson Leathers for their Fall/Winter 2007 collection. Vanson Leathers is America’s largest manufacturer of leather motorcycle jackets and motorcycle riding apparel. In business for over thirty years in Massachusetts, USA, Vanson has consistently innovated and evolved its product line to exceed the expectations.
Once again it is impressive how the brand searches for the highest quality in the market to add their own flair to a classic. There are 49 steps involved in putting together the simplest Vanson jacket, and up to 126 steps in the construction of their most complicated pieces. All of these steps are done by hand in America. We have seen the same idea of taking a high quality classic by Junya Watanabe earlier with Levi’s, Lacoste, Fred Perry and Moncler. From the outside the jacket looks like a regular Vanson – Junya Watanabe added their camouflage to the inner lining. Pics via Reinforce.
