Ones bring us to exhilaration about the possibilities of fashion as art and as an influencer in broader culture. Early on Saturday morning, we experienced such a show. With a break of sun from the previous evening’s downpour, a crowd gathered at the coffee shop adjacent to the Dries van Noten store for a first dose of coffee and croissant, before proceeding next door to the Junya Watanabe show in the small salon of the Beaux-Arts.
