Where the runway meets the street

Sacai is the brainchild of Japanese Designer Chitose Abe. After working for several season exclusively in women’s collections, she now succesfully ventured into menswear territory, recently showing her debut Fall/Winter collection at Paris Fashion Week. However, the presentation did not include a runway show. A concept that was initially also applied to her women’s collections too, but has been dropped soon. For her meanswear collection Abe draws her inspiration from classic British tayloring, with a clear nod to the Empire’s colonial history. The collection features plaid patterns and sturdy Tweed fabrics, combined with asian inspired silk pieces, resulting in a consistent and intriguing overall look. See the entire collection in the gallery.
