Junya Watanabe's prized patchwork motifs are present in the designer's Spring/Summer 2016 collection, but his unique take on classic workwear veers in an unexpected direction with design cues born from a different continent. "Patchwork" has a different meaning here, with the addition of Masai necklaces, wooden spears and wooden masks making for awkward accessories to the classically tailored linen blazers and Bermudas. Misguided? Maybe, but Junya fanatics could take solace in the expertly rumpled pieces and discard any intend statements with respect to Western colonialism.
