Christian Dada Men’s Spring 2018

Christian Dada designer Masanori Morikawa entitled his spring collection, featuring words and images literally dripping down the clothing, “Losing Power.”
“For this show, I was thinking about consumerism. It’s kind of capitalism,” he said backstage after the show.
And, evidently, he is no fan. Melting motifs included a Hawaiian print and the designer’s own logo, also a nod to French street artist Zeus. On a traditional black smoking jacket, Morikawa embroidered Yves Saint Laurent’s quote “Fashion fades, style is eternal” with the words tumbling.
As always with Christian Dada, the line was a meeting of Eastern and Western influences, with kimono-like robes here, and a chambray jacket and khakis there. Morikawa demonstrated his facility to deftly toggle among them and between streetwear and sartorial pieces, as well.
The textures he used were especially eye-catching this season, from the loosely knitted, rough-hewn beige top, to the trousers spangled with brightly colored beads and chains.
