Wool dress with a suit-like stripped pattern. Round neckline, sleeveless. Fitted waistline with graphic flat pleats and darts. Concealed zipper at back. Cupro lining. For the fall-winter season, the designer’s latest collection sources its inspiration from male wardrobe codes and traditions: pinstripes, Prince of Wales checks, military coats, gent suits and timeless trenches. From there, Junya Watanabe has crafted his very own brand of modern femininity melding fabrics: gabardine and velvet dévoré, chiffon and flannel, and a reinterpretation of volumes. The pieces are deconstructed and layered with coats turning into caps, coat tails into trousers and suits into dresses. The result is an energetic, intelligent and highly grounded line-up for women about town. Fall-Winter collection 2012-2013.
