Sacai now available at LN-CC

Japanese brand Sacai is a new addition to LN-CC this season. The selection is made up of classic silhouettes rendered in contrasting fabrications. Sacai was established by Chitose Abe in 1999 after 8 years of working with the Junya Watanabe collection at Comme des Garçons. Abe’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental and she likes to play with contrasting fabrics such as knits and super fine wovens. The use of techniques based on reinterpretations of patterns of the garment transform the pieces into unexpected shapes and silhouettes. To Abe, who is influenced by observing her surroundings and functions of daily life, 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 not only reserved for special opportunities.
