(Paris fashion week) Contradictions abound

What do untied bow ties, combat jackets, zebra prints, sandals, denim shirts and tulle have in common?

Sacai threw the normally unrelated facets of fashions into the creative mix for an eclectic co-ed show at Paris Fashion Week.

One of Japan’s most lucrative fashion houses, Sacai has built a reputation for the avant-garde and quirky.

In Saturday’s collection, it took the staples of black tie dress — such as the white shirt, bow tie and pocket outline — as a starting point and then had fun with both men’s and women’s designs.

The palette was muted, mainly black, white and khaki, but the contrasts in the 57-look show were delivered through the intentionally contradictory styles of dress.

A silken bomber jacket paired with shorts followed a grungy shirt worn with office pants and comfortable zebra sandals.

There were some great individual pieces, like a double-layered white shirt with a collar resembling a hoodie.
