>> Junya Watanabe explored contrasting silhouettes and concepts for Fall 2012. There were dandy short suits, tailored capes, and lots of modern-looking business wear (including a cropped, pleated trouser, which looked especially chic). Juxtaposing all that hardness were some lovely soft pieces; flowing dresses and romantic blouses in ditsy prints, flocked florals, or burnout velvets. Worn separately or together, they made for a collection that felt charmingly off-kilter.
