Sacai: AW16 Menswear

The Japanese word for “Love” is super close to the Japanese word for “Life”. That translation inspired Chitose Abe’s Sacai menswear for winter, where the brands love of hybrid – a coat mashed with a sweater, a scarf fused with a waistcoat – was eloquently expressed. Utility and tradition were another fusion, punk and refinement too. Unexpected luxury. Strange pairings. Abe and her Sacai crew reckon that the world needs more love – and we loved this.
