Japanese mens and womenswear label Christian Dada explores the combination of eastern aesthetics with western culture. Founded in 2010 by Masanori Morikawa who studied fashion in London and worked with Charles Anastase, the label’s name is a representation of Morikawa’s love for the artistic anarchy of Dadaism, which embraces imperfections and the rejection of societal norms, reason and logic. The movement’s anti-conformist sensibilities are strongly reflected in Morikawa’s dark, deconstructed designs. Christian Dada designs pay hommage to traditional Japanese silk weaving techniques and incorporates the yuzen method of dyeing. These techniques are accentuated by his modern application of fabrics and intricate embellishments.
