sacai x Carhartt WIP
Seeking to create styles rooted in utilitarian-wear, sacai has worked with Carhartt WIP, creating a series of men’s and women’s silhouettes that combine the brand’s hardwearing, functional styles and fabrics with sacai’s unique design language.
By fusing Carhart WIP’s iconic duck fabric jackets with sacai’s signature nylon twill – as well as specialist knitting techniques and other typical sacai details – the collaboration elevates workwear-inspired archetypes, creating items geared for everyday wear.
The accompanying campaign features a cast drawn from Carhartt WIP’s skate team, including Pepe Tirelli, Tolia Titaev, as well as Dede Lovelace and Kasper Kacia. Shot by filmmaker Joaquim Bayle, the imagery focuses on the rituals and peculiarities inherent to skateboarding.
A series of special pop ups will mark the collaboration. These will be held at DSML (Dover Street Market London) and DSM Isetan Men’s starting September 6th; BELOWGROUND, starting September 7th; and sacai Shanghai Qiantan, starting September 8th. The sacai Shanghai Qiantan store will also offer an exclusive T-shirt.
