Launched in 2010, Sacai's menswear division ably demonstrates the unique vision of Chitose Abe, who cut her teeth as a pattern maker and designer for the Junya Watanabe line of COMME des GARÇONS. Abe has a talent for taking the familiar and turning it on its ear with unexpected details and high-quality textiles. Case in point, this Hickory Stripe Blouson, which reinterprets the classic bomber jacket with a slouchy silhouette and a double-layered shawl collar with a collar latch. Zip closure, alongside subtle black and white stripes, complete the look. The jacket is available now at needsupply.com.
