Sacai was established by Chitose Abe in 1999 in Tokyo. The Sacai ready-to-wear collection embodies the idea of hybridization through juxtapositions of contrasting fabric textures and reinterpretations of patterns transforming the pieces into unexpected shapes and silhouettes. Abe's interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental. The Sacai collection has a distinctive elegance that is based on renderings and transformations of basic and classical items.
