JUNYA WATANABE COMME des GARCONS presented its 2014 SS Collection under the theme, “Folklore.”

Dresses made of jersey and fake suede made their appearance with African percussion instruments playing in the background. The color palette mainly introduced gray and beige. Fringes were created by joining two pieces of fabric and creating cuts into them. The fringes are weaved, or decorated with beads to create various designs.

A cotton blouse resembling a smock is created by joining fabrics to produce a balloon shaped form. The neck area is decorated with a necklace of beads in colors of red and turquoise blue. Standard jeans are updated with suede and ethnic style jacquard to express the theme.

Slip-ons, boots and mules made appearances in materials combining python, suede and fake leather. Spikes adorning the shoes added a rock taste to the overall collection.
