An all-Japanese Collection For The Oldest American Fashion Brand
After the original collaborative capsule presented last February (and seen the month before on the Paris catwalks), Brooks Brothers and COMME des GARÇONS JUNYA WATANABE MAN are back together for a new, concise clothing collection that expands the aesthetic initially conceived for the first release.
Watanabe is master of the composition and recomposition of clothes and uses the white canvas of Brooks Brothers shirts and jackets to insert imaginative inserts and technical details.
The collection consists of a blazer and three shirts. The blazer is a version of the classic navy blue model of the Ivy League “Madison Fit” hybridized with a leather biker jacket. For each part, different materials were used: silver hinges and a flag pocket zigzagged on the front and on the front sleeves and visible seams and shoulders.
Brooks Brothers’ iconic shirt, on the other hand, the button-down, is rethought with checkered fabric inserts, a side zip pocket and collar loops.
