You probably thought it was just a backpack.

Junya Watanabe is the designer with ultimate authority of making durable, functional garments that sidestep fashion. Workwear is literally defined through the Japanese designer’s 2018 spring/summer collection as the brand comes out with a range including anoraks brilliantly patch-worked together from cut-up backpacks and hiking jackets by The North Face, as well as Karrimor. HAVEN got a closer look at the outerwear from Junya Watanabe’s during Paris Fashion Week and saw a series of reversible coats — two by Karrimor and two by The North Face. First look might make you think its a bag, but it’s actually a jacket from a deconstructed backpack.

In other fashion news, it’s not too late to purchase Junya Watanabe MAN x The North Face 2017 fall/winter outerwear collection on Dover Street Market.
