I should hope that by now readers will have noticed our love of both Japanese fashion design talent Christian Dada and the amazing boutique Candy, part of Fake Tokyo in Shibuya. So, I’m sure you can extrapolate from this just how overjoyed we were to get the chance to pop along to Christian Dada’s fashion exhibition at Candy – yes, just like kids in a Candy store! (No, I will never get bored of making that joke…)

Samuel will be bringing you a full rundown of the catwalk show later on, but I thought I’d share some photos from the exhibition that happened after the show, working backwards in true Tokyo Telephone style! I won’t say too much about the actual collection as I don’t want to tread on Samuel’s toes, but I hope you can get a general feel from these photos.

I for one really enjoyed this exhibition – not just because I finally got the chance to shake Mr Morikawa’s hand! As Christian Dada is a brand we discovered for ourselves towards the beginning of this site, I think it’ll always have quite a special meaning for us and the images and influences really chime with our own personal style. Awesome. I’m a huge fan of exhibitions in general; there’s nothing better than getting to experience things in your own time, to touch and feel the fabrics and sculptural pieces and even exchange a few words with the designer himself: a perfect example of how I like to experience fashion in a very physical way.

Men’s fashion on the left, and women’s just behind the uh… deer.

I am so sorely tempted to make a ton of ‘oh deer!’ jokes right now. Must resist!

Beautiful patterns.

Hello there, Jesus! Playing on the Christian name? Anyway, we just love a sukajyan!

Perfectly moth-eaten…

…And perfectly studded! Samuel informs me that this is seriously impressive work.

Headpieces featured in the catwalk show.

One of my favourite items – lovely light printing, with hand-drawn buttons! Really love it!

One of the highlights of the show making it into the front window – and what a show! I hope that’s whetted your appetite…

    Wow very nice I want some of these cloths 🙂
    I completely love it

    Maybe it’s just me but I find Christian Dada to be largely overrated. It seems like weirdness for the sake of weirdness, so you end up with a bunch of clothes that are kinda cool as art pieces but relatively uninspired and not suitable for creating a cohesive style.

    @ Zombie86 – Just wait until you see the look book! You’ll love it even more.

    Glad to see another Dada fan 🙂

    @ brad-t – I think this season for Dada was quite unusual – there was a huge disparity between what he showed on the catwalk and what we saw at the exhibition & in the lookbook (Samuel’s post coming soon!). The catwalk was very much fashion-as-art which was great, but I was also happily surprised by the amount of actually wearable clothing at the exhibition.
