Pleated and Flair: Junya Watanabe FW 2016

October 31, 2016

Junya Watanabe has always introduced eccentric textures to her collections. Pleated skirts and flared shirts are the main staples in the most recent one. Each piece is basic and peculiar at once so that they can be embedded into various wardrobes, but offer quirks to ensembles as well. All about minimalism and neutral palettes, she ensures that her items are wearable on a daily basis and transcend day or night.


Origami is a fine art that emphasizes folds and crevices. This Origami Jacket does more than shield you from the chills of autumn. It offers a bold texture that will lighten any outfit, while the dark palette ensures that you can wear it with just about anything. Just think of the possibilities if you wore it with this Pleated Skirt that elongates with a dash of glamour.


Denim has come back with a bang, which is evident in this Denim Skirt with a Ruffle. Taking a normal black skirt to new heights, the denim patch ensures that varied fabrics come to play so that idiosyncrasies are met. For those who prefer a classic touch, the skirt comes in tulle to fulfill your gothic ballerina dreams.

Pleated or flared, Junya Watanabe has textures for all.
