Sacai

Sacai was established by Japanese designer Chitose Abe in 1999 after 8 years of working with Junya Watanabe at Comme des Garçons. After taking a maternity leave, Abe was inspired to create her own line that embodied something different, new and fresh. Not concerned with breaking the rules, she is known for her unconventional combining of patterns, giving garments different “coming” and “going” aesthetics, and turning the known into the fantastical.

While her collections may appear to be about femininity, Abe’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental. Her designs are absolutely whimsical variations on basic silhouettes, creating a distinctively elegant look that can transition easily between various occasions.
