In a sea of fashion, Sacai's Fall/Winter 2013 collection was a cut above the rest. The label took the expected (motorcycle jackets) and gave us the unexpected (motorcycle jackets in white leather with fur sleeves). Fall staples were transformed into pieces of fashion art- yet they maintained their wearability.
The Japanese label Sacai was established in 1999 by designer Chitose Abe. The Sacai aesthetic understands the importance of balance- art, fashion, luxury, and above all wearable clothing. Most recent success of the brand probably can be attributed to Paris Fashion Week, where four years ago Sacai began to show their collections. Beforehand, Sacai was mostly known amongst fashion insiders and savvy shoppers.
Season after season Sacai is the label you want to watch and wear.
