JUNYA WATANABE SS2015
It's very blue, I guess we can say that much.
Some part of me thinks this jacket will be very popular
Patchwork game very strong
So GOOD! (Maybe I'm biased because I love all blue) I like that it's sort of modern/space-age boro. His patchwork has always teetered on the edge of boro, looks like he finally just committed to it this season.
Paisley shirt in blue, a hybrid only Junya can deliver! Straight on my SS15-coplist..
Seriously. Those blazers are freaking awesome. I want all of them. So well done.
I can do without the eyebrows though!
I love the white/natural/cream patchwork pieces.
One might say there`s an excessive use of blue, but nonetheless this is fantastic from start to finish. Loving the jackets.
love the blues, standouts for me are the reversible patchwork coats and the short asymmetrical color block jacket
surprise surprise I really like this
Junya stole my all blue color scheme. Also, patchwork game is strong, as is sashiko, but it feels like he is just stuff that brands like Blue Japan and Kapital have been doing for a while now, and in pretty much the same shapes and items. At least Kim Jones, when he collaborated with Kapital for Louis Vuitton, used boro and sashiko in very European shapes. So, a lot of wearable garments, and I'll probably pick up a few pieces to wear, but I don't see his usual "spin" on traditional pieces. .I suppose that his use of what looks to be nylon and suiting fabric, and what looks like blown up woodcut prints, are sorta a nice deviation from the norm.
But, for example, this jacket:
and this shirt:
No such thing. You're on drugs. Get help.
As somebody who has committed to an almost entirely blue uniform, I have to say that this looks too clean to me in comparison with Kapital, Blue Japan, many of the workwear-influenced companies, and even recent Visvim. Maybe I just need to see it off the runway, mixed up in a streetwear context.
Those might be my favorites, but there's a lot that I like from this collection. Really cool stuff all around.
I agree that there is sone really nice things, and I'm pretty sure I'll be looking out for some pieces, but that's very different from the collection being really great as a collection. When I buy something like Blue Blue Japan, or Indigo Farms, or whatever, I am looking for cool things to wear - I'm shopping for myself. But when I look at a show, I am looking for something special, something that makes me look at something from a new vantage point. This collection doesn't do that for me.
In contrast, the Louis Vuitton/Kapital collection did. I've always liked those workwear fabrics, but that was the first time I really thought about them as materals for tailored pieces in non-workwear shapes.
