Junya Watanabe is known to defy all odds and continues to do so across his Spring/Summer 2024 collection. The Japanese designer just visited Paris Fashion Week and welcomed guests inside a petite space to showcase his latest androgynous creations.

Junya Watanabe’s SS24 runway show was defined by highly oversized attire, dynamic brand collaborations, and patchwork detailing with utilitarian qualities. The first look previewed a collarless coat with dim-lit asymmetrical patchwork panels, perimeter zippers, and belted closures. Watanabe soldiers stormed the runway wearing frayed top layers, netted shirting, and slouchy denim bottoms. Elsewhere, trench coats were made solely from reattached belts that swung with the body, while utilitarian work jackets featured metallic clasps and construction straps.

Dark-colored denim was crafted into capped outerwear with doubled collars and uneven pockets, complemented by demented hairstyles spiked in all directions. Watanabe presented unexpected collaborations with London-based brand Palace, Stüssy, and Carharrt WIP. The first delivered resourceful boiler suits with harness and badge ornamentation. Stüssy unveiled a sleeveless hoodie with metal punctures and cursive chest branding, while Carharrt showcased its classic workwear jacket drenched in refined leather.

Take a look at the Junya Watanabe SS24 collection above, and find more Paris Fashion Week SS24 coverage across Hypebeast.
