If you’re into chukka boots, you’re going to love Sacai Beige Striped Chukka Boots.
According to a recent article on Business of Fashion, if you claim to be a die-hard fashion lover and still don’t know Sacai, you have to stop calling yourself that. No worries, I’m not as harsh and also believe that if people call themselves something long enough, they will eventually become that. So just read this piece, it will fill your knowledge gap.
Sacai might not be a household name just yet, but in the world of fashion it’s capable of triggering a lot of oohs and aahs. A lot of that have to do with the supremely talented, beautiful and humble designer behind the brand, Chitose Abe who designed at Comme des Garçons and Junya Watanabe before striking out on her own.
As I browsed through the collections, I have realized that perhaps her greatest gift is the ability to turn everyday items into something eccentric and fashion-forward. This quirky pair of chukka boots as part of the Sacai & CLARKS collaboration from Spring/Summer 2014 collection is a prime example.
Of all chukka boot brands in the market, CLARKS is probably the most popular yet the one that I most likely avoid for the reason stated in this post. However, when primary green vertical stripe (or primary blue wingtip) is painted on an otherwise ordinary pair, I’m seriously reconsidering my stance. Thanks to Abe, something run-of-the-mill suddenly becomes utterly fashionable and desirable.
