After graduating from long mentorships under the guidance Rei Kawakubo and later Junya Watanabe, Japanese Chitose Abe founded Sacai in 1999. The brand distinguishes itself for its avant-garde spirit, absolute technical mastery and uniquely hybrid cultural language (itself only possible thanks to Abe’s technical expertise). Most famous are the brand’s “spliced” garments that literally fuse together not just two garment styles such as the bomber jacket and blazer, but two entire cultural patrimonies to produce surprisingly wearable pieces of avant garde design. This same avant garde spirit is also to be found in the brand’s simpler offerings such as impeccable graphic t-shirts, track pants, hoodies and shirting.
