Could an ACRONYM x Sacai collaboration be in the works?
Photos have surfaced online showing several alleged sacai x ACRONYM designs, which fans believe could be an upcoming collaboration between the two labels.
Images show four pieces – an olive bomber jacket fitted with multiple pockets and shoulder straps, a multi-layered overcoat, an all-black quilted jacket, and nylon shorts – on the design sheets of the sacai brand. ACRONYM is listed under each iteration, which suggests that new designs will arrive in an upcoming crossover.
Last week, Errolson Hugh, the designer behind ACRONYM, posted a photo with sacai founder Chitose Abe on Instagram, further fueling rumors that a collaboration is underway.
“My new side gig is security for @sacaiofficial,” he wrote in the caption.
This unconfirmed collaboration would mark the first between sacai and ACRONYM, both of which have solidified their respective places in fashion through more than two decades of design. Munich-based ACRONYM is recognized for producing highly innovative and adaptable constructions that often use a monochrome color wheel with little to no marketing. In a similar light, Tokyo-based sacai explores the concept of androgynous design through a high fashion lens.
