I love talking about drops. As a female Sneaker Connoisseur, the lastest sacai x KAWS Drop Special Collaboration has our clique excited. The brand sacai has started a lot of buzz in the last few years with their luxury streetwear. Plus their sneaker drops with Nike. I personally cannot wait until the lockdown is over to rock my white Nike LD Waffle sacai.
sacai x KAWS Drops in July 2021
If you did not know the house has a deep respect for the creativity that originates from the street and resisting categorization. Preconceptions and self-imposed ‘rules’, for sacai’s 2021 Autumn & Winter men’s collection, founder and designer Chitose Abe embraces the freedom that comes of splicing counter-culture codes by exploring the transition from punk to hip hop, sacai style.
Playing with wardrobe vocabulary from two seemingly disparate and opposing street culture worlds. Abe finds a common language in the classical clothing archetypes that form the foundation of both and be part of sacai’s vernacular. And flexes her cross-pollination to make a new proposition.
sacai x KAWS Collaboration Streetwear Culture
A new project with the artist KAWS celebrates a long-held mutual admiration and friendship. A 21st-century expression of the idea of ‘wearable art’, first inspired by the meeting of minds between Yves Saint Laurent and Piet Mondrian, sees KAWS artworks applied, true to their original palette and form, to sacai’s men’s and women’s silhouettes.
The women’s 2021 Pre Autumn collection continues with a series of simplified shapes that speak to new ease while amplifying the house’s hybridization contrasts. Tweed with chiffon; down with silk – a dialled up a visual imbalance that makes something new.
Accessories, not least the elegant and classic silk foulard, become an important ingredient in the mix, melding with jackets, coats and dresses.
