Junya Watanabe cape, AA tee, Ksubi jeans, Ann Demeulemester boots

I promise I won't gush.

Ok, I will! Especially when it involves a piece by Junya Watanabe ;)
I am awed by the thought and engineering that goes into the cape/top that I am wearing.
The cape drapes the torso in a certain manner, and there's a built-in half vest inside the cape which fulfills this purpose. The vest literally pulls the front of the cape back to skim the torso and is attached to the back of the cape via a black cloth strip, which frees the rest of the cape to flow out in the shape of a bubble behind.
So this construction allows the garment to fit like a blazer in front and a cape behind - sounds bizarre but the execution is just pure genius!

A couple more pictures of how the cape fits from various angles:


With a pair of my trusty boots on, I'm ready to start being a weekend warrior!

Thanks everyone for your kind words!

Maverick - I got the boots on sale from, but they are not online anymore :( I last heard that SF Barneys has then, so you might like to check it out once you move to San Fran. ;)
