Shiro Sakai Shape and matters
Shiro Sakai is considered one of the most talented pattern-makers in the world.
Fond of shapes and matters, he constructs his creations directly on the body, just like a sculptor might, with no preliminary sketches and only his hands and mind to guide him through his process. He presented his first collection during Fall/Winter 2016.
Shiro Sakai spent over 27 years with Comme des Garçons, and 19 years with Junya Watannabe.
In 2017, he was invited by Armand Hadidia to take part in Leclaireur X, alongside the likes of Uma Wang, Greg Lauren or Takahiro Miyashita The SoloIst. Using ancestral techniques, he reinvented the tuxedo jacket with total creative freedom.
