Junya Watanabe Redefines The Biker Jacket For Fall


For Junya Watanabe’s RTW Fall 2013 collection, the common key denominator was the biker jacket but in several variations.  You had leather, tartan + denim pieced together to create moto dresses like the beauty above whereas in other cases, you had wool versions with leather sleeves and vice versa.  The best, I think, was the biker + varsity jacket combo as in look 1 below – very clever.  I loved the primary tartan throughout the collection in bright orange with navy + white.


The other dresses and skirts ranged from fishtail to asymmetrical, in wool + in stitched denim, which looked great with a cognac color leather biker jacket with tartan sleeves (above, look4).  There were also patchwork jeans with swatches of tartan + leather, which I’m sure the DIYers will be all over, creating their own versions come Fall.  This was also an opportunity for Watanabe to debut some bags + looks from his capsule collab with Spanish luxe brand Loewe.image
