Out of Africa they call it, but all we see is sheer creativity from Junya Watanabe, the Japanese designer who took inspiration from Africa to create a new kind of tribal fashion, for his spring 2016 show at the Paris fashion week.
The designs were made up African Ankara fabrics in shirt dress designs, futuristic oversized neck accessories like those worn by east Africans, as well as head accessories that seem to redefine the African headgear.
All kinds of tribal pieces were infused into this collection, which was shown at the Paris museum of the history of immigration. Was Junya trying to say something to us or is this just a futuristic message of what becomes fashion in the near future?
Having to take an African theme and adding a futuristic style to it is quite impressive and we love how he has interpreted his African inspired collection.
Would you as an African rock these looks and what’s your take on this?
