Presented this weekend at the Palais de Tokyo, Junya Watanabe’s fall collection was a study in geometry. Building off the basics—the white button-down shirt, the black tailored pant, the circle skirt, the motorcycle jacket—the Japanese designer manipulated these template-like garments into sculptural, multi-dimensional forms. Employing a honeycomb shape, fractal-like spikes composed scarves, shawls, a tailored-minidress, zip-up coat, and a jacket with rounded shoulders. Sci-fi, helmet-like, and origami-folded chapeaux topped loose ponchos made of cut ribbon-like strips, and wavy, intricate, accordion-pleated capes with ruff-like necks were layered over cropped skinny pants. Executed largely in black, white, and gray, Watanabe saved color for the ending of the collection. Spherical, cocoon-like shapes covered the shoulders in rich violet and red, topping clingy, ankle-length frocks. Watanabe’s footwear of choice—studded, black patent leather lace-up oxfords—brought his high concept back down to earth.
