Stitch patterns like the ones used in the Sacai fall/ winter 2018-19 collection have meaning. They come from folk-customs that many cultures take pride in.
The use of wool is also a material used to increase national pride. Some wool sweaters are branded for their exclusive use of local textiles similar to the ones used in this show.
The collection takes inspiration from various folk-lore customs and remixes the looks into travel designs. They are perfect for the gypsy-nomadic types.
