Holding its ground through a hybrid design language, Sacai is recognized for its distinct approach to modern tailoring merged with streetstyle influences for a modern edge. Founder Chitose Abe presented her Fall 2022 collection at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, showcasing her first collection since the start of the pandemic. The range celebrated Sacai’s return to the runway, presenting a bold offering rich in silhouette diversification, impeccable craftsmanship and material manipulation.

For Spring/Summer 2023, the Japanese designer presented a transitional wardrobe for the modern-day working woman. From office to street, a satin-lapelled blazer slashed into cape form kicked antics off, followed by a shoulderless rendition with ruffled shirt-like underpinnings. Button-down dress shirts donned arm cutouts for a fluid effect, standing next to pleated leather garments equipped with contrasting utility belts for easy storage while on the move. Slitted tracksuits donned linear detailing that drifted with models in movement, while bomber jackets were reimagined into scored coats and flared trousers delivered in military tones.

In contrast, practical nylon dominated reimagined trench coats that transformed into functional dresses, corsets and mini skirts, the latter resting atop fringed tank tops and slouchy suit trousers. Tones of “Violet,” pastel blue and silver injected a dash of vibrancy, adorning glossy vinyl outerwear and pencil skirts, billowing blouses and textured pullovers.

Sacai SS23 saw Chitose Abe’s masterful craftsmenship submerged in shifting officewear cues for the contemporary woman. The brand delivered an evolutionary outlook on formal attire, from melded silhouettes to genre-defying notions.
