Sacai SS18

Sacai SS18

1340

The essence of sacai. Re-visiting the purest and most feminine expression of Chitose Abe’s vision for the house. Building new iterations of hybrids made up of multiple pieces, rather than two. Creating multi purpose clothes that make up a woman’s functional wardrobe.
Exploring ultra-femininity and couture silhouettes born of masculine, military and punk ingredients. Re-purposing familiar, everyday references. Re-balancing familiar asymmetrical shapes into something new.
Menswear Glenn check with military camouflage, ripstop, lingerie camisoles, crochet lace and pleats. A jacket worn either with its original intent or draped from back-pack straps or with sleeves tied to create a bustier-like archetypical women’s couture shape.
A punk biker jacket is feminized into a cotton cashmere cardigan, the aggression of its rivets becoming ladylike pearls. A lace tablecloth is translated into decorative punk-like patches.
Delicate floral prints are super-sized, miniaturized, embroidered, pleated and cross-pollinated with checks, all in one light-as-air dress.
A pillow-case is re-appropriated into a series of bags. Sporty nautical details feature on shoes by Pierre Hardy for sacai.
