Some Assembly Required
With all Chitose Abe’s collections, there is a lot to look at, with an almost overwhelming amount of details. But her continued exploration of accessories and graphics was a high point with its fluorescent zipper accents and original take on a record bag. Seeing a sacai collection is often like trying to finish a complex puzzle, where the pieces that shouldn’t fit, somehow transform themselves to create something better than the original. But reinterpreting garment construction through the idea of assemblage is what Abe does best, and this collection continues to remix the conventions of how clothing can be made.
