The Spring/Summer 2018 menswear line by SADAK debuted with a gender-progressive latex fashion show. The Berlin brand has a simple mission statement — to "celebrate life and cultural identity." With previous collections, SADAK has been successful in living up to the expectations of multi-cultural tonalities and range. The brand's newest contribution 'Slave Sauvage' is no different. Combining formal tailoring with contemporary streetwear for Spring/Summer 2018, SADAK brings up relevant societal narratives about dominance and oppression. The collection is "inspired by a set of miniatures found at Belgrade's ethnographic museum during [...] Berlin Fashion Week."

Playing with a neutral color scheme and textiles that vary in textures, SADAK incorporates a nomadic component in its latex fashion show by exhibiting models with unibrows — a natural symbol for a strong character.
