Tokyo brand Sacai is embarking on a global pop-up tour, called “Hello Sacai.”
Chitose Abe is taking the tour to key cities throughout Europe, Asia, and the US. The first store, called “Bonjour Sacai,” started in Paris on February 12, and runs until March 9. An online store also launched at the same time.
In-store is Sacai’s ready-to-wear collections and some pop-up exclusive pieces, as well as a variety of special collaborations. Brands teaming up with Sacai include Nike, A.P.C., Fragment Design, Beats by Dre, and more. Items include clothing, of course, and shoes, as well as accessories like phone cases and headphones, and even homewares.
However, whether this experience will lead to a permanent store outside Japan remains to be seen. In an interview with Vogue, designer Chitose Abe said “I would love to have permanent stores in cities like Paris and even New York, but I am very particular about finding the ‘right’ permanent space.”
