The Junya Watanabe Fall 2014 collection was an eclectic translation of traditional punk menswear. The collection fused Sid Vicious with Oliver Twist and presented its audience with a slew of tattered and patch-adorned looks. Models took to the stage in mohawks and spiked hair wigs that were displayed in a palette of bright hues.

The collection was eclectic and timeless, two words that almost always describe the work of Comme des Garcons designer Junya Watanabe. This sleek runway show was a bold and unexpected take on punk menswear and fused the genre's edgy aesthetic with one that is more associated with vintage styles.

Though referencing traditional punk apparel, this collection remixed its essentials and made them relevant for those who appreciate thrift store finds.
