Flush from the Andam Fashion Award he won this summer, Tokyo-based French designer Julien David is taking off this season.

His spring outing played on the same theme as his last men’s collection, called “The Spoiled Child,” with a charming lineup of school-girls-gone-bad looks that exemplified a certain street-youth culture. David has a knack for cool prints, thus silver spoons, toys and tyrannosaurs were incorporated into the clothes, along with a witty use of a striped oxford pattern and a motif based on graph-paper checks — replete with a red margin.

He also worked blazers, pleated skirts, T-shirts and pants in lightweight cotton jacquards and brocades that called to mind wallpaper from a rich Victorian home, while shirtdresses featured eyelet perforation and childlike scribble embroideries.

With French roots and a cool Japanese aesthetic, David is on track to find his own special niche in fashion.
