Sadior? Daçai? Not all coat racks have the lyricism of Fendace, Skendi or Gucciaga, but the Sacai and Dior collaboration in June seemed to be whispering rather than singing. That is, until last night – when Browns East celebrated the partnership blockbuster-style, lining up with every other hack, exchange, and crossover this year. With Cktrl ringing in the evening, the entire ground floor of the Shoreditch boutique was swallowed up by the collection, making it the largest installation Browns has ever committed to. “The raw energy of Browns East and Shoreditch provides the perfect synergy to this capsule that truly embodies the mutual respect these two incredible creatives, Kim and Chitose, have for each other,” says Ida Petersson, Director of Purchasing . Tech-looking saddlebags, spliced bombers and creamy, breezy knits make up part of the 57-piece offering, which is on display until November 21.
