SacaiSS2012 370x540 Sacai Autumn Winter 2012

The Sacai presentation for Autumn/Winter 2012 was postponed for a few days after receiving an offer to exhibit as part of the officially sanctioned Paris Fashion Week. The new exhibition space at Les Beaux-Arts de Paris was quickly packed with internationally renown editors and tastemakers that one would expect at a major house label show. For a small brand like Sacai, the attendance spoke to the growing strength of what is not just a new label, but one that has transformed into a money making powerhouse for the stores that carry it.

The collection was a similar example of the way Sacai makes complicated pieces easy to wear through execution and proportion. As Paris was heavy with menswear inspired collections, Sacai used traditional suiting fabrics and dolled them up by attaching pleated skirts with heavy hems to weigh down the light chiffon. A three-dimensional look is always included with any Sacai purchase; a shirt dress which reads plain in front reveals a contrast knit back-panel and permanent pleat skirt. Major crowd-pleasers were the bomber jackets and argyles that had been injected with feminine cascades. A piece that is gaurenteed to fly off the rack is a knit blazer with interior black ruffles in shirting fabric as well as a simple tee shirt with attached silk wrap skirt. Sacai is strongest when the items are readable and easy, this collection continued the progress that was made in Spring Summer 2012. All Items available at Riccardi in August 2012.
