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
