BLACK IS BLACK!
Paris: This season, Junya Watanabe explored a darker, more romantic spirit which showed off his strong workmanship. Sticking entirely to black (with the exception of a white sweater) he made a statement with impressive cutting techniques – working a circular pattern as a base to build on. Everything, from tailored jackets to skirts and tops were treated in this way and all were teamed with cropped pants decked out in black sequins. – Lizzy Bowring
