Junya Watanabe Spring 201303/07/2012
Karl Hab's coverage of Paris Fashion week continues with Junya Watanabe's Spring/Summer 2013 Collection. This season's presentation saw a move away from the work wear aesthetic that has dominated previous collections, to be replaced by a more refined button-down approach that had muted pastels and tans paired together to create a smart, urban look. Relaxed-fit trousers ended at the ankle, while denim was rolled up to herald in another sockless Summer. Prints went head to head with stripes on shirts while the inclusion of contrast piping on jackets was a nod to classic sportswear of a past era. Jackets were also not confined to a single style; double and triple button and double-breasted varieties were all worn down the runway, with various lapel styles mixing things up as well. Outerwear was lightweight and complimentary to the relaxed collection.
