This stunning piece is Watanabe´s take on classic tailoring. As he so often does, he took an archetypal item, like a three-buttoned blazer and gave it his personal twist. In this case, in form of faux leather sleeves in combination with a classic pinstripe pattern. In this case, the use of fake leather is not a sign of poor quality but rather an environmental choice. The whole Comme des Garcons brand does not use real leather.
Furthermore, this great was featured in Watanabe´s celebrated Fall/Winter 2016 collection as look 11 on the runway (there is also another runway piece from this collection for sale).
