    This looks great. The coats and moto jackets are terrific! I wish he would do something similar for women.



    Thanks for the posting, ngth.

    You are all welcome:-)




    He did the "new" longer length sooo well on the jkts. (Everybody is doing it on swrs)




    I think the fabric could be Comme typical boiled wool. In some other stuffs might be wool/poly or just washed poly.

    Laika, wait a month - if the past two Junya years are any indication, he may just do the same thing for women.

    I usually find the ideas behind his collections clever (ss 07 track suit suits) but nothing I would wear. But this is great and I could see myselfin most of these outfits.

    Thank you. I would 3 years ago. I think I am growing out of such literal interpretations these days. I'll see how it looks in stores, but I swore off biker jackets. I do love the patchwork jeans though. Overall it's a lazy effort from Junya - however, like I said in the CDG thread, I am sure he will make up for this in construction and fabrics. Judging by his prices though, I am scared to think how much that leather will cost...

    The color is a bit too strong for my tastes but the details such as that puckering in the center of each pocket zip is really a nice touch.

    Faust I LOVE that jacket, but I think it's going to be too bright for you. I tried n the one in the runway pic in blue and I thought it was bright. I have a higher bright threshold than you. The fabric is so nice though. I have a peacoat in that fabric in black, with the peek-out lining too. If you can get a black one Faust I'd go for it - you been to the CDG sale?

    Thanks, Johnny. Yea, maybe it's one of those fleeting infatuations. Haven't been to the CDG sale yet - maybe this weekend.



    EDIT: Is your peacoat with two vertical zip pockets? I recommended it to jj.still.

    Yes it is. I don't usually like pea coats but this is nice. I got it in xs though, so it's neat.

    Yea, neither do I. I wasn't crazy about the zippers (believe it or not), but the fabric is cool.

    Faust,



    Love the jacket.[Y][Y][Y]



    For reasons including the mentioned puckered pockets and back details. I also really like the color, why not add some serious chromic saturation to your wardrobe? It will go fine with grays and black.

    I like so many things from this collection, but my heart is set on a proper trench...
