For AW15, Junya Watanabe recontextualises the traditional art of origami – a venture previously explored by Miyake and shown to eliminate waste and the need for cutting and sewing.

Renowned for their conceptual thinking, limitless imagination and progressive exploration of sustainable practise, during Paris Fashion Week we always look with excitement to the major Japanese avant garde designers and their protégés. This season it was Junya Watanabe’s collection that stood out. In a monochrome play with wardrobe classics and masterful 3D contruction, Watanabe’s AW15 line was recontextualising the traditional art of origami, incorporating elements of the ancient hobby into varying garments in each look, and we were astonished to see the beautiful and wearable outcome. Applying origami to fashion is a venture previously explored by Issey Miyake and shown to eliminate waste and the need for cutting and sewing. More here.
