Sage de Cret is a brand that has existed in Japan since 2001, but only made their international debut in 2013. It is the work of director Kimitoshi Chida, and resulted from his desire to create something tasteful using meticulously selected and treated fabrics in Japan. The brands name is a combination of the two French words “sage” and “decret”, meaning sensible and decree, and it quickly becomes apparent that these two concepts permeate the collections.
A large focus throughout each season is that both the roles and the details of all garments are well thought out, and this comes through when you look deeper than the initial inspirations that seem to come from the military and traditional dress clothes. We love the attention to detail given to things like an unstructured blazer that is finished by washing the wool to give it a rumpled texture, or a classically cumbersome coat like a duffel being made up in stretch fabric with mesh sleeve lining for ease of movement. It’s this thoughtfulness that reminds you that K. Chida isn’t just rehashing the same staples, but improving them in his own particular vision.
