Junya Watanabe introduces a new in-house line of backpack-infused outerwear designs for the season. The functional pieces follow his recent collaboration alongside Karrimor. The dynamic new styles are progressive and push creative boundaries in terms of utility and performance.
The new range of goods reference a design that made its first appearance back in 2018. The backpack jackets boast a militaristic aesthetic and are offered in either the liner jacket or fishtail parka for the SS21 season. It is offered in olive green and earthy options held together by buttons, snaps, and pockets. The back of the design has more storage with straps, which allows the wearer to transform the garment to be worn like a bag. The in-house designs are offered along with the bright red and black collaboration with Karrimor.
