Tokyo based Sacai was established by Designer, Chitose Abe, in 1999 after working with the Junya Watanabe collection at Comme des Garçons. Abe quickly developed a signature style which is at once unique, timeless, innovative, and experimental.
As an addition to the Sacai main collection, Abe started Sacai Luck in 2006 as a lingerie line and later relaunched it in Spring 2010 as a ready-to-wear collection. Sacai Luck is now characterized by it’s unexpected combinations of materials and it’s well executed balance of light and delicate fabrics. The entire brand is designed and manufactured in Japan, which is reflected in the quality, craftsmanship, and design of the garments.
Sacai Luck’s FW13 collection carries many familiar fall themes: plaids, puffer vests, varsity jackets, and knit sweaters – all encompassing the nostalgia of back-to-school. Abe perfectly translates these themes into mature and sophisticated pieces for the school girl in all of us . Whether we’re re-living our prep, grunge, or punk days – she’s got us covered.
Here are a few snaps from the collection, which is now available to shop in-store or browse online
