Sacai summer 16 collection_beyond all expectations

“PARIS, France — Vintage clothing is fashion’s greatest resource, but there aren’t many designers who use it as anarchically as Sacai’s Chitose Abe.

Outfits switched personalities from behind, the way a blue sweater, for instance, sprouted chiffon wings, or a slip dress flipped sides, inside to out.
