Seriously Smitten with SACAI !!!

I have the pleasure to introduce you to a designer that has made me stand to attention: SACAI.

Sacai designer; Chitose Abe is a former designer at Comme des Garcons,where she worked for 8years before launching her label in 1999. Her collections are made in Japan and her "multi-dimensional designs" are as complex as they are innovative.

Why it has taken me this long to come across her is a mystery to me...but that Selfridges has given her a corner... is an absolute coup.
This is a designer worth her weight in "beautifully constructed and intricate detail" gold. Each piece that I have seen for her Autumn and Winter collection has given me goose bumps ...sensational.
The wool pleated skirts with hidden short trousers: photo 2 ...had me at "Hello there!"....only hiccup for me is that it isn't lined. For a person that cannot wear wool on her skin..this is an unfortunate turn off and especially at that price. 
But! It hasn't deterred not distracted my attention. The items are a little heavy,all the work that has gone into certain items can be felt in the heft when holding up the hanger...but boy! what hanger appeal it has.
It has been a long time since my antenna has come up....I used to feel the same love for Yohji and Miyake...Sacai is up there with them.

Available at Selfridges and online at Netaporter and Farfetch.

Seriously smitten
