Japanese designer Junya Watanabe is known for continuously pushing the boundaries, especially when it comes to workwear and tech-infused clothing. Having collaborated with the likes of Carhartt WIP, Levi’s, and The North Face, it’s safe to say that Junya’s love for workwear runs deep.
The Japanese designer’s Fall/Winter 2018 collection proves not only that the workwear is here to stay, but the way in which he approaches the trend is second to none.
