An Interstellar Experience
Chitose Abe’s FW20 direction for Sacai took an unexpected turn for a sci-fi dystopian narrative with a collection that was inspired by movement, space and time. By working with silks and fabrics that required more technical treatments, the designer was able to create a collection which she referred to as 4-D in regards to the effect she attempted to create to include all the elements. The collection included prints that originated from NASA photographs , imprinted on body suits and blouses, elegant tuxedo dresses crafted in silk and satin, sheer skirts and blouses, puffer coats and even hints of knitwear that completed the other half of dresses. The silhouettes were something unlike your average everyday runway look but were created in such a way that their shapes bounced around the body in a manner that is very different than a regular blouse or coat but at the same time with the maximum amount of flair & flattery.
