Chitose Abe Creates World-renowned brand, sacai
World-renowned brand, sacai has garnered high praise for its remarkable technical proficiency and poise. Founded by Chitose Abe in 1999, sacai is a showcase of her brilliant creative intuition and elevated aesthetic. Sacai has established itself as one of the top fashion labels in its short 20 years. Redesigning what it means to be classic, sacai has experienced tremendous expansion following highly successful collaborations with Nike and well-received diffusion lines.
Abe originally created the brand after needing a new creative outlet. Abe was trained by Junya Watanabe and Rei Kawakubo while working at Comme des Garçons as a patternmaker. In 2011, sacai made its first appearance on the runway in Paris where the label grabbed the attention of Western buyers. The label is carried in over 175 international retailers. Since then sacai has collaborated with a number of brands including Nike, Vans, Birkenstock, Hender Scheme, and Ugg. As a prominent Japanese fashion brand, sacai finds continued triumph producing well-designed pieces for its legion of polished patrons.
