Chris­tian dada

Hong Kong Tatler - - Style News -

there are far too few jack­ets in the world with pho­tos of ben­tover bot­toms splashed across the front, don’t you think? Well, it seems you’re not the only one. For the au­tum­n­win­ter 2016 col­lec­tion of Chris­tian dada, a tokyo-based line launched by Masanori Morikawa (pic­tured below) in 2010, the Parisian-in­flu­enced fash­ion house (for men and women) col­lab­o­rated with provoca­tive Ja­panese pho­tog­ra­pher nobuyoshi araki to splash sex­u­ally charged images across gar­ments. these (no doubt in­ten­tion­ally) in­sta­wor­thy flashes of flesh sat along­side lav­ish flo­ral em­broi­deries that evoked gi­ant colour­ful tat­toos. Ev­ery­thing about these clothes— para­chute pants and fish­tail bombers and rub­ber trousers—screams 21st cen­tury, as tes­ti­fied by the le­gions of hara­juku kids and K-pop stars who wear them. these are clothes to get you papped and up your “likes.” Wallflow­ers need not ap­ply.
