Editorial

For this collection, Junya Watanabe collaborated with Marimekko, drawing inspiration from organic forms and stones as they are found in nature, so it was no wonder that the designer looked to the Finnish brand’s archive for fruit and vegetable patterns from the ’50s and ’60s, a time of quiet creativity for Nordic design and particularly for Marimekko, which was flourishing at that time. The prints, including graphic motifs, polka dots, stripes and camouflage, decorated asymmetric and irregular-shaped cocoon dresses featuring draping and overlapping panels worn with matching cycling shorts or leggings. The clothes were strikingly combined with punk hairstyles and accessories, chokers, bracelets and sneakers decorated with pointed studs, leather boots and pirate boots. There were also matching biker jackets and Breton tops.
