Where the runway meets the street

The Spring 2009 deliveries are approaching fast, therefore we will start previewing some of the menswear collections that we enjoy the most. One of those was once again the upcoming Junya Watanabe collection.

“…Junya’s take on travelers initially suggested old colonials, decked out in Panama hats, collar-and-tie, jackets and Bermuda shorts, saddle shoes, and Argyle socks. And lugging huge, bruising suitcases, to boot (undoubtedly containing a Bible). But then the world of Watanabe literally flipped, as models doffed their navy blazers, reversed them, and returned in a khaki safari jacket, say, or something in gingham with a zip.” Via Men.Style.

We enjoy the mix of safari wear, work wear and even smart styles that remind of Thom Browne. There are lots of dressy shorts in the collection, long pants are in general rolled up. The blazers certainly stand out and the overall look works very well. Next seasons collaborators include Brooks Brothers, Levi’s, Lacoste and new this season also Baracuta. As usual something to look out for.

Take a detailed look at the Junya Watanabe Spring 2009 collection after the jump.
