BEDWIN – Fall/Winter 2009 | Available Now at UNION LA

I’m liking those light blue button downs. Good for my school uniform which I hate wearing by the way. But I make it fresh so hey!

Japanese label BEDWIN , founded by Masafumi “Bebeton” Watanabe (who also co-founded Tenderloin, boasts paramount quality in their apparel. Following a simple yet tried-and-true concept of fresh twists and perspective on classics, staples we are all familiar with such as toggle coats, suits and button downs become something rather modern and new without being jarring. The label’s Fall/Winter 2009 collection sees interesting pieces such as sturdy woolen suits, white button downs with print details on sleeves, brightly colored pea coats and toggle coats, deliberately wrinkled denim jackets and newsboy caps. UNION LA just received some great pieces from Bedwin such as the rain jacket and button downs. Check out Union LA for more Fall shopping.
