TOKYO — In one of the fashion world’s more unlikely pairings, Loewe creative director Stuart Vevers and Junya Watanabe took over a section of the Spanish embassy here on Tuesday to unveil the fruits of a one-off collaboration: a capsule collection of bags and ready-to-wear pieces crafted from Spanish leather and Japanese denim, heavy on patchwork detailing and punk edge.

The two designers staged three runway shows Tuesday, incorporating the collaboration items into 24 looks featuring a mixture of pieces from Watanabe’s archives and Loewe’s fall collection. The shows, building off the vibe of Watanabe’s fall runway presentation in Paris, had a distinctly punk attitude. Models sported spiky hair in a range of hues from purple to orange and strutted around a set featuring photos of regal Spanish palaces in Seville, the Casa de Pilatos and the Casa de Guardiola. The shows also commemorated the 400th anniversary of bilateral Spain-Japan relations.
