Love Over Rules
This season, Designer Chitose Abe wanted to evoke the idea of peace, love and unity through the words “Love Over Rules”, originating from the artwork by American conceptual artist Hank Willis Thomas that is seen throughout the collection.
Abe revisited some of her favorite prints such as Reyn Spooner, Pendleton as well as suiting fabrics in solids, glen checks and pinstripes and nylon MA-1 materials that have been important to her throughout the years and reworked them in graphic patchwork patterns inspired by Hank Willis Thomas’ work.
To reflect Abe’s personal expression and her own styling, some of the looks include items that are not part of the sacai collection such as Nike leggings and A.P.C. denim pants showing that sacai can be worn in different ways for people to bring their own expression of individuality.
Patchwork knits melded with bomber jacket panels or military style heavy duty double zippers. Patchwork jeans, tailored trousers and shorts.
