Establishing one of the world’s most prestigious fashion labels, and redefining standards of high fashion and luxury in the process would be enough of a legacy for most people, but not for Rei Kawakubo. The Comme Des Garcons founder/designer also took on a protégé, Junya Watanabe, who would become one of the elite names in global fashion in his own right. Like his mentor, Junya Watanabe is renowned for his avant garde expressions of technical excellence, innovative tailoring and forward thinking sensibility.
In his on-going relationship with Levi's, Junya turns the hippie vibes up to 11 with the quintessential pair of vintage inspired jeans which look like they came out of your uncle's closet as opposed to a brick and mortar. From tweed scraps to camp blanket swatches, who knew deconstructing the 5-pocket jean would be such an effective mode of celebration.
