Sawa Takai founded her namesake label with her sister Rie in New York, 2012 – presenting her first capsule collection. Heavily influenced by menswear, her garments reflect the detailing and reinforcement techniques learnt interning with Engineered Garments in New York and Guiliano Fujiwara in Milan. All of her designs have strong roots in menswear and utility yet are graceful and easy to wear. Born in Gifu, Japan Takai went on to study design at the Fashion Institute of New York where she went on to win numerous awards and cement her footing in the fashion industry.
Sawa Takai’s AW15 ‘ANNIE’ collection makes reference to Woody Allen’s ‘Annie Hall’ creating pieces with a sense of the famed character to evoke a metamorphosis from naiveté to confidence that translates to contemporary womenswear. Inspired by the famed ‘Annie Hall look’ the collection aims to convey a feeling of fragility and vulnerability which is achieved through overtly wide collars, imperfect loosely stitched shirt pockets and muted mixed tartans in melancholy shades of navy and grey. Soft pieces are contrasted by strong silhouettes including boxy vests and oversized coats with dropped shoulders to evoke a sense of independence. Combining masculine construction, considered colour blocking and playful feminine detailing, the collection portrays the modern female psyche with a balance of delicacy and boldness.
