Sacai launched a limited edition collaboration with Manhattan Records, the iconic record shop based in Shibuya, Tokyo for its AW2018 season. The bags is available at the Sacai Aoyama flagship store and select international retailers from August 25th.
Sacai applies her signature hybrid aesthetic of taking familiar silhouettes and reinterpreting them to create new and unexpected shapes and for this collaboration, she has reworked the signature Manhattan Records record bag with their graphic logo in two styles.
The first style, the record bag shape has been re-imagined in a soft lamb leather with metal handle that can be folded over to create a clutch bag. The second style is a leather handbag and record bag hybrid with a similar fold over flap closure and the straps can be re-arranged to be carried as a cross-body bag, a shoulder purse, or a clutch. The Sacai and Manhattan Records logos were combined to create a graphic eye-catching pattern.
