Every now and then i *accidentally* run into some amazing runaway photos… and I just HAVE to know who created those outfits. My latest “catch” is Japanese fashion designer Junya Watanabe.

You probably never heard of him. After all, he is Japanese. But after I’ll show you some of his creations, your name will definitely stick to your memory.

Before we go into that, let’s see some facts about Mr. Watanabe.

He was born in 1961 in Fukushima, Japan. He attended the Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo, then went on to work for Comme des Garçons.

Since 1992 he’s been working under his own name and, as you’re about to see some of his latest creations are truly fascinating.

OK, let’s dig right in with the photos as I’m sure you’ll love them.

Floral prints are hot right now, as you may know, and part of the blame is taken, of course by Mr. Watanabe:

This has got to be the most interesting shirt I’ve seen so far:

And to take things further, he paired the shirt with this really cool down vest. Take a look:

And how about this sports jacket?
