This Junya Watanabe Collection Mimics Thrift Store Clothing

Japanese designer Junya Watanabe released his Fall 2018 Ready-to-Wear capsule, which is strongly characterized by thrift store clothing silhouettes and distinct Scandinavian influence—especially in the oversized coats and pilled sweaters. Additionally, a recurring design motif is the abundant floral patterns that gives each outfit a more spring-friendly feel.

The Fall 2018 is defined by "No Theme" and is a testimonial to the Japanese designer's refreshing approach to fashion as "decidedly un-fashion." The thrift store clothing definitely carries the appeal of secondhand style. Junya Watanabe took this motif and began to experiment with layered fashion, as well as ensembles of tightly tailored leggings and excessively oversized tops.
