Background Story to the Sacai Label
Let's return briefly to Chitose Abe, the woman behind the Sacai label. She has managed to break out of the classic image of women in Japan and created one of the most influential fashion labels in the country. Since the first fashion show in Paris in 2011, she and the brand have gone from strength to strength. The hype around the shoes in the collaboration with Nike is the highlight so far. All models of the collaboration are sold out, of course, and almost all Nike x Sacai are priced at 400€ or more on the secondary market, depending on the size. We're excited to see what cool things are in store for us next year from this collab.
