Designer Chitose Abe's skilful reworking of established classics has become sacai's reliable signature; a determination to breathe new life into old forms no doubt the foundation of the label's success. A strong understanding of vintage garments gives Abe license to tweak and experiment, each piece familiar yet sharply modern. This season's Chore Jacket is a case in point. Referencing early twentieth century, "Union Made" workwear from the likes of Headlight and Lee, this Made in Japan update swaps metal buttons for a zipper and press stud placket, alongside an adjustable draw cord hem, contrast stitching and multiple pockets. A modern touch introduced with a series of embroidered rayon panels around the neckline, this functional standard is given an understated update in true sacai style. Find it now at HAVEN.
