Japanese brand CHILDREN OF THE DISCORDANCE presented their Fall Winter 2022.23 Menswear Collection, that was inspired by the 80’s culture, with a video directed by Keita Suzuki, as part of the recently finished Milan Fashion Week. The Reason collection reimagines and updates 80’s outerwear and military uniforms with the latest technology and the original fabrics and textile. The textiles are created to have a retro feel, while still looking fresh. The main foundation tones are oatmeal and beige, while powerful orange and red bring strength to the wintery palette. This season Children of the Discordance collaborated with Australian brand UGG, and designed unique styles inspired by Native American and by Western boots.
After skateboarding, hip hop music and street dance, a new chapter of my own background which deeply relates to Children of the discordance’s identity. This season, I looked back at the 80’s culture and expressed it in Children of the discordance’s own way. I had a strong desire to update and recreate something from that time. Those years represent the first ten years of my life. I was young, but the 80’s culture and music had such a deep influence on me. I only realised that much later and recently I thought back to “Reason”, the song by Zürich’s artist Maadrhino, which became an inspiration for this season – Shikama Hideaki, Children of the discordance’s creative director.
