Paris: A subtle folk flavour impregnated Junichi Abe’s latest outing. Timeless wardrobe staples were updated in Native American and blanket stripes motifs – a blanket coat had suede utility pockets patched on, while nomadic shawls were styled with matching knits in stripe and Navajo motifs. Playful tailored suits and sweatshirts came in blocked colours and materials. Vibrant pumpkin oranges and light blues enlivened the Autumnal colour palette of grey and earthy tones. Other highlights such as collarless double-breasted coats, tracksuit trousers and cropped utility jackets felt slightly more refined and less rugged. Overall, the collection was functional, versatile and polished. – Diego Sanchez
