Fuck..this shit is all over the place..not in terms of color or style or anything but some pieces look amazing/inspired and some literally look like Uniqlo

feels like a more grown up version of Supreme, Vis, etc...i think it goes well with style on someone such as Seenmy, however from my personal style standpoint I find it harder to relate to this than some of his past collections.

I can also see this working with people who are into Engineered Garments and the whole outdoors style, which I think is becoming more popular.

very nice. Can anyone shed some light on the shoes the models are wearing? They seem to be the same type shoe. I'd love to buy a pair for myself.

Wanted to post this passage from Tim Blanks' review that left me pretty fucking floored:

By the way, that cues a distinctive feature of Watanabe's shows. Unlike elsewhere, there is no attempt at a sense of momentum building toward a finale. His show is simply a bunch of blokes shambling back and forward (this time around to the whiskey tones of Tom Waits). It's a lot like life.

— Tim Blanks

Damn I guess hard times forces one to up their creativity. His writing this season has been stellar, usually it is just some wrap-up scribbled review, but he had some pretty pithy and dead on statements this time round.

I'm liking it a lot...reminds me of N(N) a/w 08...but more experimental

This is exactly what I thought: "Haven't I seen this before"....

Ironically the prices for N(N) will be much more reasonable....

yeah Junya mens is one of those things in life i just don't "get"

there's a lot i can expand on that statement, but i'll just leave it at the pricing for one.

props to people who pull this off (so far seenmy is the only dude i've seen, Leon Lai wears a shitload of Junya but looks bad in it, Shawn Yue looks bad in it, I passed a dude outside CdG Aoyama decked out in head to toe Junya and looked too affected even though he wore the clothes naturally). But yeah, the whole label is a mindfuck

edit: just like life.

ss09 is expensive as hell, not as $$$ as f/w 08, but still some serious bank.

just saw stuff through mag pics, have not inspected in person. The double-reversible jackets looked pretty mindblowing

I liked it better when n(N) did it. They also didn't use "COOL GUY" models.
