WORKWEAR MEETS FASHION: SACAI X CARHARTT WIP
With styles inspired by workwear, the collaboration between sacai and Carhartt WIP is nothing less than logical. They have created a range of men’s and women’s silhouettes that combine Carhartt’s durable, functional style with fabrics featuring sacai’s unique designs.
The fusion of Carhartt WIP’s iconic jackets in their characteristic duck fabric and sacai’s signature nylon twill, complemented by technical knits and other typical sacai details, elevates classic workwear to a higher level and makes the items suitable for everyday wear.
The accompanying campaign features individuals from Carhartt WIP’s skate team, such as Pepe Tirelli, Tolia Titaev, Dede Lovelace, and Kasper Kacia. Director Joaquim Bayle focuses on the rituals and unique aspects of the skateboarding world in the visuals.
The collaboration is further celebrated with some special pop-up stores. These will be available starting from September 6th at DSML (Dover Street Market London) and sacai Isetan Men’s; from September 7th at BELOWGROUND; and from September 8th at sacai Shanghai Taikoo Li Qiantan. The sacai store will offer an exclusive T-shirt in two colors, navy and light blue.
