Fall Winter 2012 Style: Junya Watanabe Comme Des Garcons Wool Knit Stadium Jumper

The knitwear from Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons has been very popular this fall and I recently came across some new cardigans. The Wool Knit Stadium Jumper, which is similar to the classic stadium jacket comes in the black/grey and relish/black colorways. They are now available at vendor. I think this cardigan is dope. I will wear it with a pair of fitted True Religion or Balmain jeans. Are you feeling these cardigans?

I got my hands on a picture from music/talent manager Yandy Smith photo shoot with Black Men magazine. The shoot was shot by photographer Howard Huang. Smith is a cast member on Love & Hip-Hop. She is also a graduated of Howard University. Smith has been in the entertainment industry for almost a decade. She started out as an intern over at Violator before becoming Jim Jones’ manager and the president of Monami Entertainment. I like Yandy a lot and think she’s a dope manager.
