sacai AW2017 Men's Collection
Hidden Madness / Cut Up
sacai's signature hybrid aesthetic is unencumbered by what is rational. The unreasoned gesture of a cut.splicing familiar clothing archetypes and then reassembling ideas in pairings that challenge convention. Juxtapositions that shouldn’t make sense when seen together, yet somehow do. Then joining them with a raw-edged, unrefined hone perfect.
Playing with the tension between eccentricity and simplicity, stripping back the notion of hybrid. Taking traditional pieces and subverting them there for the wearer’s pleasure, rather than to satisfy an audience.

A men’s pea cross-pollinates with a “lady” The first collaboration by sacai with 2017.
