Well...I've just seen the entire collection elsewhere...and I honestly not very impressed...and, I typically LOVE Junya Watanabe!!!

To me, this collection looks a bit "too" classic (if there is any such thing???)...and a bit too traditional. Obviously, this must've been Watanabe's intention.

It looks like he raided the archives of Brooks Brothers...added a few typical Comme Des Garcon twists...like the colorful buttholes...the piping around the lapels and bottom of the jackets, etc. It looks like Brooks Brothers...but the proportions have been shrunken-down and made a bit more fitted.

This collection pales in comparrison to the 2004 Fall collection. The fabrics for that collection were a bit more interesting.....like fabric that look like tapestry and furniture upholtery...and the use of darting/pintucking in the elbows and knees were a bit more explorative.

I won't dismiss this collection by saying I don't like it....maybe I was just expecting something a bit more unusual from Watanabe. Oh well??!!

Such a quintessentially English vibe.

I quite like it though it does appear - at times - a little restrained.
