Nike to collaborate with Commes des Garçon pattern cutter Chitose Abe’s innovative label Sacai

Nike has unveiled its plans to release a womenswear collection in collaboration with Sacai, the innovative Japanese label helmed by former Commes des Garçon pattern cutter Chitose Abe. Constantly reinventing her signature runway looks with exciting textures and material, Abe has garnered an impressive fanbase within the fashion industry, including the beloved Anna Wintour and Karl Lagerfeld.

The Japanese designer will now lend her dynamic designs to Nike Sportswear, crafting an eight-piece collection with inspiration from the sportwear giant’s extensive history. “Our excitement to work with Chitose was really born from her unique understanding of form and silhouette. Many of her collections have inspired the design team at Nike, through her elegant and graceful application of materials” said Kurt Parker, vice president and creative director of Nike Sportswear.
