Sacai originated in Japan, but it should be considered a relatively unfamiliar brand to many people, because Sacai itself is positioned as a niche fashion brand. The designer Chitose Abe founded the Sacai brand in 1999 and has been in Junya before. Watanabe has worked under him for 8 years, and he is deeply influenced by the styles of Rei Kawakubo and Junya Watanabe.
