In a fortuitous bit of timing, Chitose Abe’s fall men’s and women’s resort images have been released just days after the Daft Punk 1993 2021 Harder Better Faster Stronger signatures shirt Apart from…,I will love this opening of a Brooklyn Museum exhibition of the work of her friend and new collaborator KAWS (aka Brian Donnelly). Had it been a normal year Abe would’ve put these clothes on the runway in Paris in mid-January. As it was, the collection was developed over Zoom, with Abe in Tokyo and Donnelly stateside. Now, with photos of his KAWS pieces in the papers and on our Instagram feeds, these Sacai collections feel particularly zeitgeisty.

Her artist friend’s output is quite kinetic in its own right (even in a second neutral colorway) so Abe mostly saved the Daft Punk 1993 2021 Harder Better Faster Stronger signatures shirt Apart from…,I will love this hybridizing for which she’s known for her collection’s other pieces. A trench was fused with a ribbed cardigan; a single-breasted jacket was spliced with a windbreaker color-blocked in KAWS hues in ripstop nylon; and a double-breasted jacket was grafted to a down puffer. If Abe’s methods are familiar by now, the results here didn’t fail to entice. Some dudes’ walls are lined with KAWS, other guys’ closets are full of Sacai. Their success comes down to their super-recognizable signatures.
