sacai x UNDECOVER / 20th October / show in Tokyo

With all the bad news in the news, we would like to share more fashion news from sacai. Amazon Fashion announced the “AT TOKYO” series of events to be held during Amazon Fashion Week TOKYO  (AFWT) – October 16-22, 2017. The “AT TOKYO” program is a part of Amazon Fashion’s ongoing commitment to the Japan fashion industry and design community. The program features Tokyo-based brands that uniquely represent the Tokyo vibe from a different perspective.

Continuing to spread its influence in fashion, Amazon has now launched a fashion week in Tokyo — with UNDERCOVER, sacai showing during the event. Japan’s influence on the world of fashion is undeniable, particularly right now, but often the country’s biggest designers become part of the overseas fashion weeks in order to showcase their goods to European buyers.

Sacai and UNDERCOVER

are delighted to announce the participation in the “AT TOKYO” program with an exclusive collaboration.
“I clearly and still remember the shock when I saw “6.1 THE MEN” up close 26 years ago. While I’ve been
thinking to do something new in Tokyo where I live when Jonio-kun (Mr. Jun Takahashi) addressed me and I
decided to participate in the Amazon Fashion ‘AT TOKYO’ program. I think UNDERCOVER is the best partner to
deliver the same shock that I experienced before to as many people as possible. Together with everyone, I am
looking forward to seeing the scenery I have not seen yet.” Chitose Abe, sacai

The addition of these big names represents a coup for the fashion week, especially considering the fact that both UNDERCOVER and sacai have recently shown in Paris. Amazon Fashion Week Tokyo will be taking place from October 16 until October 22.

“For the first time in 15 years, I finally decided to do my fashion show in Amazon Fashion ‘AT TOKYO’ program
even though I have been getting requests to do fashion shows in Tokyo for several years, I thought if I accept thisoffer, I want my show to be a day that remains in history, I offered to collaborate with Ms. Abe from sacai and sheagreeably accepted. I’ll be thrilled if you enjoy the fusion of these two brands with completely different views of the
world throughout our show at Amazon Fashion ‘AT TOKYO’.” Jun Takahashi, UNDERCOVER

The show will be broadcasted live online from the special site :

Back to the 90s, we went as Prada left its hometown to present its second cruise collection on the seventh floor of the Herzog & de Meuron designed Prada HQ in New York. The star-studded event which saw the likes of Selena Gomez, Dakota Fanning, Marc Jacobs, Uma Thurman and Chloë Sevigny, was also live streamed in Times Square. Floating transparent panels hung in the minimalistic space, some in red to recreate an augmented sunset while mirroring the frenetic energy of New York.

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.
