The Sacai Fall/Winter 2013 men's collection toys around with proportions of garments to create luscious layered looks.
Sacai is the lovechild formed by Japanese designer Chitose Abe. The label began as her passion project for womenswear and has now officially branched out into the realm of men's fashion. Abe did not present the collection with a runway show and instead focused on circulating her exclusive pieces. The fall/winter 2013 men's line-up is inspired by British tailoring, colonial history and modern aesthetics. The looks are a combination of these themes. Playful pieces include flooded trousers, over-sized cardigans and harem-style sweatpants with elastic ankles. Abe toyed with proportion, fit and modern structures for menswear while simultaneously nodding to its rich history.
The Sacai Fall/Winter 2013 men's collection marks Abe's successful transition from women's fashion to menswear.
