Welcome to the Dollhouse
The fake lashes were slightly askew, their lipstick laid on too thick, and their pigtails were more petrified than perky—and in the typical Watanabe fashion, the clothing followed suit. The designer adopted his usual collage aesthetic, joining part of a utilitarian staple garment with another saccharine piece, lending each look a rahter twisted undertone. All throughout the collection, floral prints and university sweatshirts were butchered and masterfully reassembled into grungy patchworks paired with distressed denims and spiked biker boots. Leave it to Watanabe to give innocent anime a darker edge.
