Junya Watanabe is an ace at finding cool venues. This time he took us to a school in the Fifth Arrondissement with a spectacular courtyard, which was enhanced by clever lighting. Watanabe marches to the beat of his own drum so while men’s wear is returning to a more tailored and elegant universe, the Japanese designer sent out a radical norm core show. Inspired by destination places around the world he appreciates and focus on their graphic design appearance, he created two tone worker jackets and coats with wide cargo pants often placing their logos on the garments. For example, the St. John restaurant in London or the Amsterdam Tulip museum. His man does not belong anywhere in particular but travels the globe with stops at the bookshop or an artisanal beer brewery. Ever the collaborator, Watanabe enlisted Swabian shoemaker Heinrich Dinkelacker which is owned by former Porsche CEO Wendelin Wiedeking.
