Sacai Yellow Day Dresses
Capturing Chitose Abe’s vision of merging unexpected materials and silhouettes, this knitted sweater dress is a Sacai poster child piece. Based on a classic sweater with a ribbed round neck, hem and cuffs, the hem is elongated, turning the piece into a dress. An abstract textured embroidery unveils the designer’s penchant for far-fetched prints and patterns.
The Sacai aesthetic is an experimental mix of contrasting fabrics, activewear silhouettes and unexpected references. Chitose Abe spent years working as a pattern cutter under Rei Kawakubo which the designer claims taught her the importance of creating original clothes that are innovative, timeless and can be worn for any occasion. This yellow silk blend contrast trim dress from Sacai features an off the shoulder design, short sleeves, contrasting cuffs and front flap pockets.
