Reef x Masafumi Watanabe Capsule Collection

Collection Masafumi Watanabe

As announced during the Agenda fair in January, Reef is launching a capsule collection with the London-based designer Masafumi Watanabe.

As explained by the designer himself, he was inspired by the style and cultural exchange of Reef’s traveling surf ambassadors. The result is a capsule collection mixing the Californian beach style and the Japanese high-end fashion -like the colourful Kenzo or the minimal, but sophisticated Yohji Yamamoto.

Our goal is to create an eternal product that would complete both lifestyles: from the streets of Tokyo and from the shores of the Southern California“, states Masafumi Watanabe.

The pieces of the capsule collection are the Rover (with the Swellularâ„¢ technology), Mid and Low, the Voyage sandals in leather (with the Vibram sole), the Switchfoot Prints sandals, the Chakras sandals for women, and a M.W. hat.

Special mention to this pair of sneakers for girls whose design reminds me of the Yeezy Boost:

Men and women won’t be jealous at each others since this collection will be available for both from next June.

Here is a selection of my favourite pieces, presented by the professional surfers Mitch Crews and Luke Davis.
