Christian Dada creative director Masanori Morikawa claimed “the state of troubled youth” was fresh in his mind when he came up with the brand’s FW17 collection, and that much was reinforced when statements like, “I do not like the drugs, the drugs like me,” “paranoid,” and “hollow” could be seen writ large across various long sleeves and jackets.
With Paris Men’s Fashion Week done and dusted for another year, we were lucky enough to be in attendance backstage as the brand got set to wow with yet another rebellious and complex collection. Included was a mix of sartorial smart and streetwear garb: Morikawa juxtaposing the two with his own added touch of Asian flamboyance for a highly experimental look. Pinstripe, so often associated with stuffy and everyday office wear, took on a new lease of life when paired with blue loafers and wild leather looks.
Check out our best shots above, and then find out what was happening out on the Parisian streets in our final dose of street style.
