STRANGELY SUITABLE
Paris:
Watanabe’s collection was slightly subdued, as the designer showed slim, trim, cropped suits, not unlike Thom Browne’s creations minus the robust cuffs. However, dashes of the designer’s eye for rich allusion and salt-of-the-earth dressing showed through. Hints of the 70s were subtle, but ultimately everywhere. Floral shirts came in mustard and avocado, though the designer gifted them with small collars, as if to take only the best of that era. Chambray blazers, suede-barn coats, and engineer denim car caps showed that despite the suiting, Watanabe still found worker wear crucial. His subdued footwear choices – white canvas topsiders and plain-toe oxfords – looked clean and keep the emphasis on the clothes.  —Andrew Luecke
