Xtreme. One of the words used by the press this season has been confirmed. Junya Watanbe captures the imagination with his anti-conformist, punk vision. Perilous hair, tussled and spiked. Make up turned upside down, dirty at the temples and alluding to a fine mask. Like the escaping replicants in Blade Runner, but this time walking down the street in Berlin, or in a club in Tokyo. They are rebels who execute a wardrobe adulteration. Three dimensional origami, pointed architectural shapes in the form of skirts, stoles and capes, ripped off and thrown aside during the show for an extra thrill. From the giant sound system came the music of Nine inch nails. Denim returned, mixed with leather or cut into shorts. Trousers covered in studs and worn with flat boots. T-Shirts from a sports club, worn with overalls constructed like works of industrial design. Above legs incased in patchwork tights, like an underground rock star. One who never forgets her trench coat with rips across the back and veers from silver mini skirts to quilted worker pants. Breaking up these elements with oversize pieces and giant sweatshirts with sculpted folds.
