Considered still relatively new to the Paris stage, Christian Dada under the artistic guidance of designer Masanori Morikawa took to the runway with a sense of struggle set as the underlying theme. With subtle references to drugs weaving in and out, namely in the Coca-Cola logo-spoofed pullover, ensembles also seemed to incorporate accents borrowed from both eastern and western sensitivities. For instance, staple items such as the double-breasted blazer and the puffer vest were stylized in such a way that payed homage to the Japanese kimono. When asked to comment on his collection, Morikawa added, “The focus is on something like conflict, frustration.”
