Androgynous tendencies

Junya Watanabe Spring 2010
PARIS, October 3, 2009 By Sarah Mower []

“In a season of sheerness and lingerie, casual and military, a woman who likes a trouser suit in her wardrobe might as well be cast out into the wilderness—if it weren’t for Junya Watanabe.”

“Watanabe’s models, with their towering, twisted head wraps, walked on flat, pointy lace-ups with a brisk dignity (no tricky footwear to negotiate, no fuss with accessories, no danger of wardrobe malfunction).”

“His collection was wholly about variations in menswear checks for women with the obsessive logic Watanabe brings to every collection.”

“The genius of the collection was that, for all of the hip experimentation, it was fully tooled as pragmatic daywear—avant-garde, but completely utilitarian.”
