Now Trending: Pattern-Lined Trousers

June 12, 2011 § Leave a comment

The say a butterfly flapping its wings in Brazil can cause a typhoon in Japan.  If you ask me, a similar theory applies in fashion: a designer designing cute pants in Japan can cause mass sensation throughout the rest of the fashion world.  This season, Junya’s pattern-lined trousers has done just this.

Unfortunately, unless you have $500 to spare on pants that will probably out of style next summer, you probably can’t relish in the glory of Junya with this trend.  But luckily retailers are offering versions of the look for less.  The Gap, for example, has created Junya-inspired shorts in various styles.

The look is majorly trending on the streets of Seoul.  I saw this guy last week in Hongdae sporting a version of the patterned, lined trousers.  I would have probably styled them differently, perhaps echoing the nautical theme of Junya’s S/S 11 show, but maybe I should just get a pair of my own.
