We’ve been wading through Paris Fashion Week pics all day, but the most enticing gear so far has come from Junya Watanabe’s Fair Isle-soaked runway show. In particular, the blazers.

Oh, those blazers. This is the best of the lot—or the one least likely to cause temporary blindness—but there’s plenty more where that came from. They tend to follow the Freeman’s style shirt-jacket model, but replacing the tweedy wools with some of the loudest patterns known to menswear.

Of course, those patterns are a lot easier to pull off when you’re dealing with something you can leave on a coatrack once you get inside. If you were looking for this year’s Navajo, this is looking like the leading candidate.
