Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons Khaki Military Tailored Jacket, UK10-12
A superb tailored military-inspired jacket by Junya Watanabe for Comme des Garcons, in pale khaki cotton canvas.
The detailing is incredible. It has a standing collar with zip concealing the hood, and front panel with concealed sturdy zip and popper fastenings. Epaulettes and flapped pockets at breast and front complete the military look.
However the jacket is transformed by a series of vertical overstitched seams front and back which give it an hourglass shape. This shaping is further enhanced by a contrasting khaki gathered underskirt which adds volume at the hips and is revealed through two deep vents behind, all cinched in at the back of the waist by two wide buttoned straps. The sleeves are long and end in pointed cuffs which can be worn over length or fastened with velcro fastenings.
