LOEWE x Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS – Fall/Winter 2013 Collection | Preview

By - May 21st, 2013

Designated as the Official Supplier to the Spanish Royal Crown in 1905 and now part of Bernard Arnault’s LVMH empire, luxury label LOEWE is shedding its rigid persona this Fall. Instead, it  found a rather odd bedfellow in Japanese designer Junya Watanabe and the COMME des GARÇONS fashion group. Known collectively as LOEWE x Junya Watanabe COMME des GARÇONS, the capsule collection  made its debut last night at the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo to much fan fare. It was also the first time LOEWE previewed its designs in Japan.  Under the styling direction set by  Stuart Vevers, LOEWE’s creative director, the collection is a patchwork of Spanish leather-craft and Japanese selvedge denim, quite literally. Including apparel and accessories, for both men and women, the collection reflects punkish ideals, visual representation of dystopia, and hints of playful nature. Exclusively available through only 40 retail locations worldwide, including Dover Street Market, pre-order for the limited release will start at the end of this month while an official launch date is set in September 2013.
