The Junya Watanabe feather headpiece is sprouting with long exuberant feathers that nearly covers the entire face and head. Head pieces can range between simple headbands and complete crown-like garments, but Watanabe designs full-on, helmet-like headwear inspired by Native American culture. These headpieces are adorned with different textures, feathers that either pop out or sway behind, combined with dread-like locks and braids that create added volume.

These headpieces are prime examples of outstanding talent in the way they’re assembled and in their complexities. It’s yet to be seen such an array of material and vibrance in headpieces on the runway, especially ones that are inspired by an underrated culture. These pieces are adorned with different color locks of red, yellow, gray and brown paired with simply draped navy blue robes.
