    I'm a total sucker for Junya. I absolutely love this, especially the blue jacket with the piping aroung the bottom edge...

    Shit, looks like my Bloomingdales gift certificates are just going to have rot for a whole year. I really hope more pictures will reveal something good.

    I was kind of hoping for his biker-esque look to be paired with the dandy look from his last two collections and have that be this seasons aesthetic but I guess that isn't the case.



    I like it, but, it looks a lot like his Spring offering to me.

    This is about as far away from your style as I could imagine Faust, so i knew you'd hate it. Can't see many SZrs liking it....Cas was my one big hope!

    yeah this seems to be a continuation of what he began with the SS collection...as a viewer i enjoy what i can see of the presentation - i get the sense these are clothes people would wear in an arbitrary train station in 1800s America, going places...however as a shopper, I feel the way I've felt about Junya's past few collections. They look nice when art directed, but kinda unrealistic when translated to everyday life. Like those leathers from F/W 07...they were like plate mail!



    Junya's clothes are ridiculously expensive though, $800 for distressed blue jeans with some grey linen trim this season?!

    matt - are those new seasons (ss) jeans you've seen?




    I've just looked at the catwalking pics..........it's brilliant! Will try to post some.

    Johnny, I'm going to back you on this one - I like it. I need to see more pictures to get a more cohesive feel of the collection, but the small details and cut of the blazers (and I don't even really like blazers) look great.



    I can imagine great coats pairing with what I see so far.

    I love what I see so far. [64] The jacket with the piping is really lovely. It would be very cute to do a women's collection with similar inspiration...whatever that inspiration turns out to be. [73]
    ...I mean the ephemeral, the fugitive, the contingent, the half of art whose other half is the eternal and the immutable.

    Well, I can't hate anything he does. I respect him and love too much of his work to do that. But, yes, it does not appeal to me personally.

    Johnny- Yea, I loved the SS collection so I really enjoy what I see here so far. If there's some leathers mixed into here then it will most likely turn out to be my favorite collection so far.



    I agree about his clothing being very editorial. In the latest 10 for men, they had a fantastic spread of a model in a full Junya SS08 levi's striped denim (I think it's denim) suit and it looked amazing! Now, whether that would be appropriate for every day wear, I don't know....but I've seen weirder things being worn. :D



    Can't wait to see the rest of this...

    Ok, I am taking back my initial reaction. I love some of these suits, especially the jackets! I might have to dust off those gift certificates after all!

    These jackets are what CDG's boy jackets should have looked like - they're quirky and slim while still being masculine enough for a man to wear.



    EDIT - To clarify - the jackets on the suits.

    Thanks for posting Faust, I tried but I'm useless.




    It's so nice. The trimming on the jackets is great, fabrics look interesting, colours are nice, proportion is good. Nonchalant dandy.

    No problem. You can't post those pictures directly, you need to download them to your computer and then upload them to a photo hosting service. A royal PITA.
