For his Fall 2014 collection, Junya Watanabe stuck to a palette of simple black and focused on fabric arrangement. The collection’s closing look—a flapper-like silhouette dripping with fur, organza, leather strips, and sequins, which ran all the way down to the crushed velvet leggings—had us completely mesmerized. The complicated, intellectual look was anchored with lace-up brogues, a play on the menswear fundamentals that Junya likes to touch upon every so often. Black is definitely back and we are calling first dibs.
