Collection spring/summer 2018
Chitose Abe is renowned for her exquisite patternmaking and daring combinations, two elements that were also present in Sacai’s SS18 collection. The show opened with parachute-inspired dresses featuring asymmetric silhouettes and interesting patchwork details. Jackets were designed to be worn two-ways, one possibility worn knotted at the front by the sleeves and held by two buckled shoulder straps. Patches of nylon, Glen plaid and army prints intertwined with white shirting and lace. Black patchwork dresses of lace panels were layered with an embellished knit cardigan and a sweater vest. Navy pinstripe fabrics alternated with floral dresses, trousers and zip neck tops, adding a sporty vibe to the looks. The exciting and unique deconstructed shapes breathed a fun and daring yet wearable aesthetic.
