Diehard Christian Dada fans have something brand new to look forward to. Eight months after the Japanese label’s Autumn Winter ’19 show at Paris Men’s Fashion Week, the line-up is now available at Singapore’s Surrender boutique. Those following the cult label can expect its usual flair for the unexpected, as well as a familiar overarching theme of anti-conformity, anarchy and rebellion.
This season, it comes in the form of a performance piece from the ’90s. Based off of the work of Japanese multi-disciplinary art collective Dumb Type, the collection takes cues from questions posed by them. Tackling matters of identity, the state of the environment, politics and discrimination, creative director Masanori Morikawa presents a collection that is as playful as it is political.
The result? A chic, tailored range – with all the trimmings of Christian Dada’s quirk-factor. You can expect elements of video artwork scattered throughout, from multicoloured stripes to pieces reminiscent of white noise. The collection consists of coats, knitted separates, wool jackets, leather pants and double breasted coats. For those looking for simpler alternatives, the line-up also offers up denim jackets, intricate tanks and frayed denim skirts. Who said avant garde couldn’t be easy to wear?
