Vintage-inspired illustrations and typography have become synonymous with the revival of classic design in today’s fashion market. Junya Watanabe’s second line – JUNYA WATANABE eYe COMME des GARCONS – collaborated with sportswear giant PUMA in producing this 1950s-inspired collection. The Japanese designer was clearly influenced by old-school design elements while digging into PUMA’s catalogs and advertisements from that era. Incorporating vintage types and comical-style illustration is not exactly new, but certainly this collaborative effort produced a fresh set of T-shirts and long-sleeve polos. Historically, both respective brands are known for quality and design and this time, customers can anticipate this special collaboration as a launch is scheduled from September 16, 2011.
