The backpack jackets that Junya Watanabe designed in collaboration with The North Face was one of the most memorable outerwear pieces to drop last winter. They flew off shelves and were a must have for both Junya loyalists and North Face heads. The concept returns in similar executions from both The North Face and Karrimor with all the requisite detail including hidden pockets, fit-adjusting pull tabs and zippered closures.

The Junya Watanabe x The North Face Trail Pack Jacket is now at Japanese stockists is listed on ZOZOTOWN’s site for  a retail price of ¥205,200 JPY, with the Karrimor counterparts available for ¥248,400 JPY.  Look for them to arrive at Western stockists including END soon.

Last year saw the rollout of the first items from North Face’s collaboration with Junya Watanabe. Perhaps the best of the whole lot however just recently dropped. The made in Japan collab in delivering a highly functional jacket that features all kinds of technical detailing throughout – inspired by TNF’s original Terra 65 backpack. A patchworked masterpiece of water-resistant  materials, this style is highly adaptable – featuring toggles and elastics at the hood and helming. Tasteful. Branding punctuates the look throughout, and alongside multiple pockets and backpack detailing. This is a show stealer and a must have for any serious technical outerwear fan. The only downside might be the hefty retail price, coming in at over $2000. It’s available now at END.

This piece is one of the best I’ve seen from Stone Island this scene. An awesome olive color way that’s the result of a garment dyeing process . The parka comes in a performance fabric made up of an outer opaque light nylon layer laminated to a very fine breathable, water and wind resistant inner membrane. The seams have been thermo-taped for optimal water resistance.  Along with the removable storm hood and zip fastening system this is a strong choice for even heavy-duty rainfall.  It’s available over at HAVEN.

The leather jackets from Saint Laurent are some of my absolutely favorites. This lambskin version from SS17 has an easy to wear cropped cut and the usual essential details on a riders jacket. The zippers are off-set with zip and flap pockets at the front.

If you’re into double riders and want one that feels more luxe in terms of hardware, details with a more modern cut it’d be difficult to go wrong with this one. The only downside is the high price point.

Available at SSENSE.

Souvenir jackets have had a surge in popularity since the movie drive was released. Plenty of Japanese labels have done their own variation on the style and of course there are plenty of excellent vintage options that you can find on eBay.  Unused is a japanese label that puts a modern spin and fit on vintage. Their take on this style is noticably minimal, there’s no back graphic or stitching, just a tasteful cropped fit and a reversible style that let’s you switch from a more  contrasted black/white ribbed style to a more incognito murdered out version. 100% rayon construction and knit collar and cuffs round out what make for an excellent piece. Available now at Haven.
