Junya Watanabe of Comme des Garçons & Loewe capsule collection: a celebration of 400 years of cultural exchange between Spain and Japan.
Spanish leather, Japanese denim and dyed punk hair are the kew themes of the new Junya Watanabe x Loewe capsule
collection, marking the celebration of 400 years of Hispano-Japanese bilateral relations.
Spanish luxury brand Loewe chose the Spanish Embassy in Tokyo to showcase the latest collaboration with Japanese fashion designer Junya Watanabe of Comme des Garçons.
“I came up with the idea of combining the essences of each other’s icon. The combination of leather and denim. This is a combination of luxuries and casualness, and also the combination of the fashion agriculture of Spain and Japan,” said Watanabe, renowned for designing innovative and distinctive clothing. In 2007, Watanabe was licenced by Converse to design a series of All-Star shoes.
Loewe is opening its doors and welcoming fans to discover the savoir-faire of the house during this year’s LVMH’s Journées Particuliéres (June 15th & June 16th).
