New found love
I've always had a special love for fashion labels that don't follow trends, such as Toga Archives, another one I have noticed recently is Sacai by Abe Chitose. Abe Chitose worked for Junya Watanabe for 8 years before setting up her own label Sacai in 1999. The mixture of contrasting fabrics and textures is her signature style and also what I love most about her collections, must save so much time on all that layering! According to Chitose, she simply selects what she likes, the back and sleeves of a cardigan and the sheer front of a chiffon blouse with pin tucks and covered buttons say, and turns them into one intriguing piece (makes it sound so easy!). The grey furry frilly sleevless jacket thingy from her ss10 collection is gorge.
