Junya Watanabe Fashion for Women
Junya Watanabe's Fall '17 collection channels the punk wave that dominated London in the late '70s and early '80s. Paneled with folds of lightly frayed tartan, this skirt is cut from faded denim in an asymmetric midi silhouette. Try yours with a simple white tee or shirt.
Junya Watanabe loves to break the rules when it comes to silhouettes - this wool-blend crepe piece is a hybrid of pants and a skirt. It's overlaid with a pleated kilt-like panel that nods to the Fall '17 collection's punk inspiration. Follow the brand's eclectic styling with a patchwork jacket or top.
Junya Watanabe describes his Fall '17 collection as a medley, with punk influences and fabric mashups coming into play. A true trophy jacket, this blazer has red tartan lapels and leopard-print faux fur sleeves. What you may not notice at first is the beautiful and precise shape of the back - the seams curve in towards the narrowest part of the waist and the flap pockets are positioned at the sides.
Designed in collaboration with Comme des Garçons, Junya Watanabe's parka first appeared on the Fall '17 runway in Paris. It has been made in Japan from army-green cotton-canvas and ruched to create volume and shape. It unzips to reveal a furry pink and black leopard-print lining - a punkish touch inspired by the designer's first-ever fashion collection.
Junya Watanabe's Fall '17 punk-inspired runway showcased the designer's appetite for youthful rebellion. This denim jacket features colorful patchwork panels of leopard-print faux fur, embroidered elbow patches, and faux leather trims. We love how the tartan edging chimes with the season's retro mood.
This top was first spotted on Junya Watanabe's punk-inspired Fall '17 runway. It's embellished at the tulle front with shimmering paillettes and has soft wool-jersey sleeves. Try layering it over a white shirt, as seen at the show.
The patchwork fabrics and punk-inspired theme of Junya Watanabe's Fall '17 line are an ode to his first ever collection - he found materials in London's flea markets and hacked up pieces from sofas, curtains and tweed coats. This wool-blend sweater is spun from a medley of purple leopard-print jacquard, gray ribbed-knit and mélange panels, and the sleeves are carefully stitched with black sequins. Wear it with dark-wash denim or a pair of black pants.

For Fall '17, Junya Watanabe is inspired by London's punk wave in the '70s and '80s - you can see it referenced in the patchwork of fabrics on this coat. Trimmed with faux fur at the collar and cuffs, it's made from cozy patterned wool-blend and paneled with fuzzy leopard-print along the hem. The asymmetric shape, faux leather sleeves and hardware all nod to biker styles popular at the time.

We expect to see something a little bit different from Japanese designer Junya Watanabe, and his 'Tokyo Additions' shirt is no exception. It's cut from black cotton-poplin and appliquéd with overlapping circles of leopard-print, faux fur, sequins and tartan wool. Channel the punk-inspired theme by styling yours with a pleated skirt.
Junya Watanabe doesn’t follow the sartorial rulebook, he reinvents it. The Japanese silhouette sculptor proposes a new approach to the Wild West denim mini skirt this season. Faded out, skewed with angled seams and haphazardly topstitched, the collage of tartan swatches peaking behind distressed details imbues a little Highland rock ‘n roll. So style appropriately with your favourite leather moto jacket and biker boots.Junya Watanabe denim skirtExposed button and concealed zip fastening at backMid rise, five pockets, contrasting stitching, all over stitched tartan detail, faded wash100% cotton; 98% wool, 1% nylon, 1% polyesterDry cleanTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 17"Model is 5ft 10" and wears a size 8Made in Japan
Junya Watanabe's skirt has all the features of the pleated styles we were obsessed with in spring, but is weighty and warm enough for fall. It's made from rich wool-blend crepe and crisply pressed with knife pleats that flare out as you move. Dress yours up or down depending on the occasion.
