Comme Des Garçons Junya Watanabe Eye
Born in Fukushima, Japan in 1961, Junya Watanabe went on to attend Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, graduating in 1984.
At this time he began his apprenticeship at Comme des Garçons as a patternmaker. Rei Kawakubo praises him and in 1993, he launched his own label within the Japanese group under the name Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons.
Watanabe is often considered a “techno couture” designer, creating unusually structured clothes out of modern, technical materials.
