Sacai is a Japanese luxury fashion brand founded by Chitose Abe in Tokyo in 1999. The brand is renowned for its prodigious technical ability, splicing two items of clothing together to create an entirely new garment. She has gained a cult following around the world for her deconstructed yet surprisingly wearable clothes. Prior to founding Sacai, Abe worked at Comme des Garçons as a pattern cutter under Rei Kawakubo and later as a member of Junya Watanabe's design team. Abe’s aesthetic elevates and simplifies that of her homeland to finely wrought classics.
