Sacai to Open Hong Kong Boutique

First standalone store outside Japan
Posted February 4, 2015

Japanese designer Chitose Abe's label Sacai opened its first standalone boutique outside of Japan Friday, Jan. 30.

Located in Hong Kong’s Central district on On Lan Street, the 1600-square-foot store includes furnishings designed by contemporary Japanese artist Ryota Morikawa, according to Women’s Wear Daily.

Sacai also plans to open a store in Beijing later this year, but Abe says she doesn’t have plans for any other stores in the works. The China stores are being opened with help from retail partner Joyce (Hong Kong), part of the Lane Crawford Joyce Group.

In October, Sacai opened an office in New York to handle the brand's North American wholesale business, reports WWD.
