Japanese fashion label Christian Dada presented it’s Fall Winter 2017.18 menswear collection BLUE during the third day of the ongoing Paris Fashion Week. Inspired by the color blue – Japanese symbol of the trouble state of the youth, Designer Masanori Morikawa mixes Eastern and Dadaism aesthetics.
Designer Masanori Morikawa is playing his own musical score, by dissecting and recomposing silhouettes based on classics staples worked through deconstruction and layering. Classic tailored jackets are worn like kimono wrap over t-shirts and striped pajamas or shirts, trench coats are morphing into tunics and army bombers or denim jackets are skinned to expose their inner layers and bone structures. Japanese traditional summer clothing Jimbei is now made with leather, tartan motifs are printed on sheepskin to pay homage to schoolboy look seen through the Japanese prism of precise craftsmanship and Wabi-Sabi philosophy. Words are flashing throughout the collection such as « I Don’t Like Drugs but Drugs likes me » or « Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die », with its literal meanings which Morikawa reminds himself of in today’s society. – from Christian Dada
