Editor Obsessions: Junya Watanabe’s Convertible Cape Trench


Every morning,’s editors reveal their current obsessions—and where to buy them. Check out today’s pick, below.

Junya Watanabe Cape TrenchI know everyone has Resort ’15 on the brain. Heck, over here at Pitti Uomo in Florence, we’re already viewing Spring ’15. However, my mind is still focused on the season we’re currently living in, that is, Spring ’14. I have a lot of garments with aggressive shoulders and editorial sleeves—which I love dearly—but these details make layering difficult. For instance, what am I to wear over my latest voluminous Comme des Garçons acquisition when it’s raining? My usual trench smooshes the sleeves—and my look. Behold, Junya Watanabe’s cape trench, now on sale at Saks Fifth Avenue. This little number can be worn as a traditional trench or you can slip your arms through two slits in the sides and wear it as a cape. I’m officially infatuated with the surreal style. However, if you’re inclined to go for something more traditional (and/or affordable), there are some fantastic vintage options on Etsy.

Junya Watanabe Convertible Cape Trench, $1,005. Buy it now.
