Influenced by the troubled youth.
You guessed it, the brand was influenced by the art movement of the European avant-garde in the 20th century. What you may not have known is that ”Christian” is for his grandfather who specialised in embroidery.
Masanori Morikawa, the creative mind behind the brand Christian Dada, focused on frustration, confusion and conflict, youngsters have to face. The collection is called ”BLUE” which represents the troubled state of youth in Japanese. Morikawa realises that troubled youth sometimes have to deal with drug addiction as well. The word ”Heroin” in a font too similar to that of Coca Cola is visible on a sweatshirt in colours of the mentioned brand. Eye-catching combinations of prints and patterns, orange and foil combinations and Nirvana signs definitely made the collection stand out.
