Junya Watanabe

Spring – Summer 2014 – Junya Watanbe is not a collection for everyone, you won’t find the lady who loves the trends wearing a piece, or even the lady who loves the quality of the high end labels. This label is specifically for those who dare and love Japanese fashion. Once again the collection is about representing the simplest pieces in a very constructed and elaborate form with mass volume draping in jersey and tassels hanging.

The colour pallet is very natural which is maybe what lacks in the collection too, bursts of colour would have made the collection come alive. How ever there are some cropped jackets and fantastic tailoring to be seen within in them, which does for a second deflect away from the main collection. Not for everyone and certainly not a collection to make you sign up to the waiting list, however this is Japanese take on fashion after all and how ever different it maybe, the cutting techniques shine through.
