Sadak Spring/Summer 2014

Berlin-based label SADAK  presents it’s  Spring/Summer 2014 collection “in liminal space”. I wasn’t sure what to make of it when I first viewed the collection, but after going through all of the looks, I  see a pretty clear direction from  designer Sasa Kovacevic. Sasa is able to take contemporary men’s trends (printed t-shirts, drop crotch pants and oversized cuts) and put an imprint on them that feels fresh; likely because he’s drawing from such different influences.

Apparently the collection mixes Serbian hip hop subculture and Japanese traditional dress. You can see the inspiration in the Serbian 19th century embroidery, Japanese silk painting and Serbian ethnography. The shapes here are the most interesting part to me as they are straddle the line between bold and wearable. This is the type of collection that you can go all out with or tone down with more traditional wardrobe staples. 18 more looks after the jump
