The Junya Watanabe Spring 2011 collection was all about being nautically appropriate. Even down to the wet-looking hair, the seaside aesthetic was held down by horizontal stripes, boat shoes, rolled-up trousers and heavy-duty sailing jackets.

For the more refined seafarer, we saw pea coats, oxford shoes and slim-fitting blazers. Check out the featured gallery to see more of the Junya Watanabe Spring 2011 collection.

Implications - Nautical fashions have become a sought-after style because they represent a lifestyle that embodies luxury, wealth and success. Many consumers in today's society place great emphasis on the ways they are perceived by others. Clothing companies that provide consumers with wardrobes that can demonstrate their personal wealth or prestige will generate high demand.
