Tokyo-based Sacai as lead by Chitose Abe has linked with fellow Japanese designer Tomo Koizumi on a truly head-turning set of organza bags. Working off of various Sacai bag silhouettes including a tote and belt bag, the bags are detailed with Koizumi’s signature ruffled tiers of colorful ombré organza.
“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,” Abe explained in an exchange with Vogue.
Commenting on the art of partnership, Abe explained, “For me there needs to be a genuine connection with any collaboration I take part in, and it is always important to me that there is a balance between the two brands and a genuine interest on both sides.”
Sacai and Koizuma’s floofy bags first debuted during fall 2020 as included in the Hello Sacai pop up store initiative. The bags will make their U.S. debut exclusively at Nordstrom stores.
