Sacai was established by Chitose Abe in 1999 in Tokyo, Japan. While her collections may appear to be about femininity, Abe’s interest is in creating clothes that are entirely unique and timeless, innovative and experimental.
To Abe, who is influenced by observing her surroundings and functions of daily life, the Sacai collection has a distinctive elegance that is based on renderings and transformations of basic and classical items. The result is a collection of items that can transition easily between various occasions and is not only reserved for special opportunities.
Sacai opened their first flagship store in September 2011 in Minamiaoyama, Tokyo. Abe chose to work with architect, Sou Fujimoto, who is known for his integration of contrary elements such as nature and artifact, the idea of outside and inside, the new and the old in his work, with which she closely identified with.
The concept behind the store was to create an environment that not only reflects Sacai's vision as a brand but for it to be a retail store with a concept that is in keeping with the verisimilitude of the dynamic culture of Tokyo as a city. The store carries all Sacai lines including the Sacai women's and men’s collections.
