Despite the first few all-black looks, the new Junya Watanabe collection was inspired by African colours and patterns, so it was no wonder the show was held at the National Museum of Immigration History in Paris, with the models’ faces decorated with little spheres reminiscent of tribal masks and enormous headpieces similar to metallic ruffs. Smooth blouses with lace details (or entirely made of lace) featured fluid lines and liquid surfaces and were worn over thin calf-length trousers or paired with leopard skins worn over the shoulders like a cloak. Later in the show it was all about bold colours and ethnic patterns for t-dresses with chunky cubist jewellery or harnesses or metallic collars.
