Japanese imprint Junya Watanabe exploits cultural appropriation to its fullest potential in his recently unveiled line of ready-to-wear. The kaleidoscopic collection takes ceremonial tribe wear and African safari getups to new levels, exhausting patchworks on everything from boxy linen blazers to dapper Bermudas, while (predominately Caucasian) models strut through the crowd sporting Masai necklaces, wooden masks and metal spears. Taking a Vincent van Gogh approach via suits and pork pie hats, the line’s jaunty tailoring and weathered fabrics make for some seriously robust summer garbs.
