Publisher's description: The first comprehensive and highly personal look into the work of Sacai, one of fashion's most innovative and multidimensional houses. Since its founding in 1999, the fashion label Sacai has garnered a global fan base and praise from fashion industry titans including Karl Lagerfeld, Anna Wintour, and Suzy Menkes. Founder and designer Chitose Abe began her career working for Rei Kawakubo and Junya Watanabe at Comme des Garcons and has since perfected the collection of expressing her personal vision through fashion. Her ability to meld highly conceptual designs with timeless wearability has made Sacai one of the most sought-after brands in fashion today. Her complex designs resonate strongly and are inspired by familiar ideas made unique by her unexpected choice of fabrics, silhouettes, and proportions. Still holding a full stake in the company, she has maintained her creative vision by prioritizing detail and quality. This book provides an instructive look at the process of design from a designer who is comfortable with developing innovative approaches to fashion through an experimental signature style.
