With an abundance of functional fashion silhouettes with camo-print motifs and a strongly versatile color palette, the Junya Watanabe Spring/Summer 2019 menswear collection takes over the runway at Paris Fashion Week. The designs strongly tie into the notion of utility, mobility and convenience. Junya Watanabe experimented with stylish on-person storage systems and presented a functional fashion collection that accented the importance of pockets with contemporary cargo shorts and life-jacket-style vests that are complete with an overbearing number of compartments.
In addition, during the presentation of the Spring/Summer 2019 menswear, a range of accessories is debuted in the form of exceptionally styled cross body bags. The collection is broken up by random insertions of bold and vibrant colors but the functional fashion is kept consistent with a decisive subdued color palette.
