Junya Watanabe Gets In On The Houndstooth Action
Another success at Paris fashion week has all the critics raving and stampeding to celebrate the Junya Watanabe's Spring/Summer 2010 collection. All I see is a hideous series of outfits for mimes. The above as an example with its houndstooth jacket and mummified toddler for a hat!?! She looks like she's on her way to a Dr. Who convention or a dadaist's ball.
Since houndstooth has received the blessings of Watanabe and Gaultier in Paris it looks like houndstooth will continue to dominate 'til Spring/Summer 2010! I think sooo much is invested in the pattern now we are in a cycle of perpetuation from which we may never be freed.
