Junya Watanabe Comme des Garçons Green Sleeveless Lace Patch-Work Dress, 2006
Contemporary Japanese fashion tends to have a creative edge and bricolage aesthetic. Balancing these two concepts, Junya Watanabe’s Fall 2006 collection showcased a runway of what can be described as curated anarchy. Streetwear styles built from the combination of military greens, masculine lines and touches of lace created a poignantly artistic interpretation of danger.
From this collection, this dress is made from an army green floral lace and piecework accents of olive, army green, pewter, and Russian green. From the shoulders two straps create a V-neckline as they meet at the sweetheart shaped bustline that flows into a plunging low back.
The patchwork forms an X-shaped “harness” detail that extends from the busts to the waist creating a slimming illusion. On the skirt, piecework godets have been inset to either side-front and to the centre back creating more dramatic flouncing to the bottom of the skirt. This detailed dress exudes confidence and sexiness offering an interesting combination of coverage and sheerness.
Bust: up to 36 inches
Length: 53 inches
This dress is constructed from carefully placed curved and geometric seams allowing for it to accentuate the body. The dress closes at centre back with an exposed metal zip at the waist.
