Back in November, rumors of sacai‘s next collaborative sneaker with Nike started circulating, with reports speculating that a hybrid PEG (Pegasus) Vaporfly SP silhouette would mark the duo’s forthcoming project. Today, sacai’s runway show at Paris Fashion Week offered a first look at the anticipated footwear, confirming the make and three variations of colorways: “Black/Summit White/Pure Platinum”, “Sail/Sport Fuchsia/Light Bone/Game Royal” and “String/Black-Villain Red/Neptune Green.” The duo’s innovative Nike LDWaffle became one of the best sneakers of 2019 and it appears they are looking to continue the doubled-up motif for 2020, complete with co-branded tags, a deconstructed outsole and varying Swoosh designs.

The fuschia, royal blue and olive green colorways extended itself into Chitose Abe’s direction for sacai’s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. An amalgamation of animal and celestial-inspired prints, juxtaposed with silk, tweed, wool and quilted fabrics all came together harmoniously in the form of two-piece sets, pleated skirts, asymmetrical tops and more. A master of fusing contrasting styles, Abe’s avant-garde outerwear ranging from athletic-led trench coats to colorful puffers took center stage as accessories like oversized chain necklaces and branded baseball caps wove the lineup together.

The sacai x Nike Pegasus Vaporfly is expected to release later this fall. Scroll through the gallery to get a closer look at the collection and see what went down backstage during sacai’s Paris Fashion Week show.
