Junya Watanabe RTW Fall 2015

A pattern-making laureate, Junya Watanabe’s technical proficiency is exceptionally versatile, and you never know how he’ll deploy it on the runway.

A pattern-making laureate, Junya Watanabe’s technical proficiency is exceptionally versatile, and you never know how he’ll deploy it on the runway. The direction it took for fall was outstanding, a display of serious skill that read as graphic playfulness.

 

The story was in the algorithmic folds, incredible shapes crafted out of the basic and commonplace, such as starched white shirts, cropped tailored black pants, capes, moto jackets and T-shirt dresses. Beginning with a plain white starched shirt and full, shiny black skirt in perfect rounded pleats, Watanabe quickly built up the silhouettes into wonderful sculptures topped with exaggerated symmetrical headgear that made the models look vaguely like chess pieces. Skirts and capes came in precise honeycomb accordion folds that encased the body, some stiff, some structured but with a springy, elastic movement. A loose, lean jumpsuit had a spiky shrug around the shoulders.

 

Most of the clothes would satisfy conceptual fashion geeks and retailers alike. But some of it was just for fun: The round, red honeycomb neckline of a hot-pink dress looked like a modern geometric ruff; an even bigger version of it on a purple look had the shape of a grand, perfectly pruned topiary.
