sacai’s Chitose Abe approaches collaborations with distinct clarity, looking to forge a genuine connection that allows for something new and unexpected. Her method is a dichotomy in and of itself, mixing time-tested stability with explorational risk. Abe’s aim is to honour the familiar while ushering in the new.
At the direction of Abe and her sacai label, this design re-imagines the Blazer by chopping the classic silhouette. The collaboration features a leather upper with exposed foam liners, as well as sacai’s signature stacked tongues and double lacing. A neutral base contrasts with bold accents inspired by original Blazer colourways.
Look out for the sacai x Nike Blazer Low “Classic Green” and “Magma Orange” to release on Thursday, 10 June 2021 online via Nike SNKRS (12:00midday), for the retail price of R 2,099.95 each.
