Sacai was established by Chitose Abe in 1999 in Tokyo, Japan. The Sacai collection embodies the notion that women can wear what they want, how they want, when they want. While her collections may appear to be about femininity, Abe’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental. To Abe, the Sacai collection has a distinctive elegance that is based on renderings and transformations of basic and classical items. The result is a collection of items that can transition easily between various occasions and is not only reserved for special opportunities.
