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.
