Biography

CHRISTIAN DADA was founded in Tokyo in 2010 by Masanori Morikawa.The label’s name nods both to Parisian Haute Couture and Dadaism, the artistic movement anchored in anti-conformism, anarchy and rebellion, challenging perceived notions of beauty and logic.

The idea of the beauty of imperfection, which is at the core of Christian Dada design, is also the foundation of the wabi-sabi Japanese aesthetic philosophy. Masanori Morikawa, who was trained under Charles Anastase in London, has forged an unconventional approach to fashion. His complex, dark and energetic vision draws on a fascination for eastern subcultures and traditional Japanese crafts such as the “Yuzen” hand-dyeing technique used for silk kimonos.

A deft balancing act of impactful showpieces and commercially realistic street wear, his collections are elevated by intricate details and elaborate embellishments, working a subtle clash of references aligned with the free-minded rebellion of past art scenes and youth movements.

Soon after launching, Christian dada has garnered a cult following on the Japanese fashion scene with a prominent presence on the Tokyo Fashion week schedule and a collaboration with controversial legendary photographer Nobuyoshi Araki for the Fall/Winter 2016 collection "Love On The Left Eye".

Initially presented in Tokyo, the label since 2014 has presented its men’s shows in Paris and opens up exciting new perspectives for the Christian Dada brand which is now sold at Colette in Paris, H. Lorenzo in L.A., KOKKO in Canada, I.T. in Hong Kong, and at online retailer SSENSE. Christian Dada have also expanded into women’s wear starting with the Fall/Winter 2015, both collections are now presented together in Paris.
