Sacai x Tomo Koizumi Team Up For A Dramatic Summer Collection
Sacai is teaming up with Tomo Koizumi to launch a ready-to-wear accessory capsule collection, infusing Tomo Koizumi's creative essence into Sacai's designs. The collaboration balances Sacai's spliced and diced everyday statement pieces with Kozumi's over-the-top ruffles.
The collection includes tote bags in small and large sizes, a bum bag and a leg warmer, which uses the iconic ruffles by Tomo Koizumi—the brand that's also known for its dramatic gowns. The accessories will be available in three colours, green mix, orange mix and black, with inspiration coming from trench coat and military item by Sacai.
From June 4 onwards, the Sacai x Tomo Koizumi capsule collection will be available in selected stores in Japan as well as selected retailers in Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore, London and the US.
Sacai is known for its collaboration with various brands such as Nike and A.P.C. and this time, Chitose Abe linked up with fellow Japanese designer, Tomo Koizumi and his eponymous brand to merge their designs.
In an interview with Vogue, Abe has nothing but praises for Koizumi's vision, "His ruffled creations bring joyful entertainment and I wanted to bring those to a practical level to our everyday life through the hybridization of our two styles."
Koizumi also echoes the same sentiments, "It’s a great honour to have my signature design—ruffles and colours—used as part of Sacai’s hybrid design" and praises Abe's ability to "mix various elements freely, still keeps a harmony and elegance."
