Chitose Abe designs for her own brand Sacai, but before that she worked under Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe (also a disciple of Kawakubo) so her pedigree is impressive. She has been quietly building a reputation for ten years now, and this '13-'14 Fall-Winter collection at Paris Fashion Week shows a skillful blend of the kind of forward-thinking, Japanese architectural approach to cutting garments she absorbed under Kawakubo and Watanabe, and a kind of classic and comfortable men's wear. I really love the very wide cut trousers but especially fun and unexpected are the ethnic Arabesque flowing pants. A simple, comforting collection but with just enough of an undefinable edge to make it unique...
