Chitose Abe is the designer at Sacai. She is a former designer at Comme Des Garcons which gives the reputation of being a skilled and witty pattern maker.
For Spring,designers are creating a wide array of two-for-the-price-of-one pieces. On the runway, the looks were shown with the jackets shrugged off the shoulders and suspended from utility straps, and with the sleeves tied at, or right below, the bust line. But they could also be worn with the sleeves pulled on and the lapels proper and correct. Demna Gvasalia for Balenciaga showed the doubled coat, in which a trench, would be attached at the shoulders to a denim vest and could be worn both ways. And every look in Jun Takahashi’s Undercover show was reversible.Its a season of couture savings.
Sacai is available at Blake and at Ikram.
