Junya Watanabe SS2003 Parachute Sweater

Junya Watanabe SS2003 Parachute Sweater


Junya’s ability to shift and occupy various spaces in the fashion world is somewhat disorienting. From Americana to punk-rock, he’s able to effortlessly channel the ethos of nearly any look, while not diluting the aspects that make it quintessentially his. In SS2003, Junya blended aspects of tech wear, cyberpunk, and bondage into several pieces which have since been referred to in shorthand “parachute” items. On dresses, tops, and pack backs were scrunched fabrics, harness, and hanging buckles.

The aforementioned suggestive interpretations of staid parachute-wear that Junya released in '03 have endured as some of his most popular work. The clothing, which included tops, jackets, pants, and backpacks, crunched and fastened in contained disarray across the models’ bodies. This specific iteration features parachute bondage straps which crease towards the hem to create a distorted silhouette.
