The Modern Woman
After years perfecting her approach alongside Junya Watanabe, Chitose Abe created Sacai in 1999, fusing sharp cuts and refined fabrics with a sporty, urban spirit. The designer creates timeless and innovative, polished pieces, toying with multilayering to underline contrasts between fabrics and textures, placing wools next to tulle, silks against cottons. Since 2009, Sacai has also been presenting menswear collections that share the brand’s values. Her first Parisian show was set during Fall/Winter 2012.
SACAI Fall/Winter 2016
Sacai’s Fall/Winter 2016 collection has everything to do with a personal fashion puzzle. Men and Women both feature, almost like a bold statement, a combination of hybridation and destructuration. Duffle coats met shearling coats, sailor coats are interspersed with perfecto hints, and straps are everywhere. Asymmetric collars double the pleasure, frenzied prints multiply, and the overall effect is harmonized in shades of audacious pink reds, spruce greens and royal blues.
