Junya Watanabe Catwalk Fashion Show Paris SS2013
On the same day as Viktor & Rolf showed their mirrored collection Junya Watanabe sent his models out on the runway with mirrored headgear. Yet the reflecting pieces were the only thing the two brands had in common. Cause could you ever really compare a label to Watanabe? The brand is so outspoken and unique it would be hard to copy that spirit.
Watanabe’s model looked like futuristic sportive sixties girls. Walking to the energetic club beats of the show’s soundtrack they sported leggings, mini dresses, cycling pants and thin water resistant jackets. Poppy colors gave the looks even more power, although a series of black designs at the end appeared just as strong.
Puma shoes with bright details completed Watanabe’s Space Age theme. At 09.30 a.m. the overwhelming show really kicked in. Full of energy we sprinted to our next show location. Unfortunately without the mirrored helmets.
