    Default Junya Watanabe F/W 08-09 Womens - Paris



    It started out very monotonous (not to be confused with monochromatic) - all those jersey drapey stuff seems so amature for him - but it ends on a better, but a tried and true, note. Not one of his strongest shows for sure.

    I quite like this, although I kind of agree about the jersey...but then again, I like jersey. For some reason though, this reminds me of Yohji.



    That wrinkled blazer above is one of my favorites as well.

    totally agree with the above two posts. really like the gathering and puckering effect that is created. interesting headwear that i don't have an opinion on yet.

    It's a bit drab for Junya, no? I'm a fan of wool jersey too, but I don't think it's doing his brilliant construction much justice here. [76]



    I can see where this reminds you of yohji, Cas...the palette, the houndstooth, the dropped shoulder shapes, etc. The material undoes it a bit though, as it just doesn't seem like a very graphic or strong silhouette.



    This little vest/shawl thing is a favorite....i suspect it will be in my sights come fall. [64]

    Heh, interesting - you mean the headgear? That shit is distractive.



    Laika, I agree - it is a bit drab.

    I'm rescinding a little. I love the simplicity of it, more and more as I look at the details. The tailored jackets are great. I think it's the lack of color, rather than the material, that's bringing me down a bit.

    It's the reverse for me - nothing wrong with the color if it was done in more vibrant fabrics... so to speak :-)

    The softness is extremely appealing though. [64]



    I like the subtle evolution toward draping from the spring shapes. As stunning as S/S is, the fabrics are all very crisp, almost stiff. This will be heaven on the body, I think--much more sexy to wear. [:$]

    I llike some of it, But find the Headgear sort of depressing, I need to know what is his inspiration behind the head dress.



    I like a few things this week, but except for Undercover (which i really need to look at again) havent seen anything that really bring out an emotion in Me.



    I have hope for this evening though, the great CHALAYAN is Centre Stage Tonight!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I was lucky enough to see this in person......I like it but not hugely, the way I want to like his clothes. I found the drapey stuff technically accomplished but a tad dull to look at. The jackets were better - the coats with the sleeves that sort of turned into capes are very good, and I think pretty wearable. The tactile scrunched and gathered jackets are the best. It's quite a disciplined, studied collection, not just endless different outfits in different colours, and there's something good about that. The show was beautiful - the music amazing.
