Adopting an androgynous approach to ready-to-wear, Japanese label sacai bridges the gap between formal and informal dressing. Established in 1999 by Chitose Abe, the daughter of a seamstress, the brand knows a thing or two about cuts, shapes and textures (see: patchwork jackets, double-breasted skirts, PVC bags and shirt/sweater hybrids). Transforming the best of basics into multi-functional focal points, sacai seamlessly defies sartorial conventions thanks to its founder’s technical know-how and experimental approach to disparate fabrics and finishes. Can we get you a side of waffles to go with your trench coat and sharply tailored trousers? Order via our menswear and womenswear edits below.
