Junya Watanabe really was kinda scary. A girl duo wearing extreme doll-like make-up and blond wigs (worn in two ponytails) looked like the opening scene of an Asian horror movie. Yet the reference was slightly different. The collection is called Kawaii, after the Japanese cult of sugar-sweet cartoon girly-ness. Hence the ponytails and the floral printed pinafore dresses. Still, these girls looked like they were up to no good. More like rebellious teenagers on a misson sporting their bomber jackets, patchwork printed dresses, puffer coats, suit blazers and denim jackets and silver cowboy boots. All models came out in pairs. It made their looks as well as the spooky, ominous side to this show even stronger.
