Beside being a guide at Pop-cul, Rikarin is a very much loved Harajuku girl. In October 2020 she launched her own brand called Scǎi, and some weeks ago she held her first brand exhibition to which I was invited.
The exhibition was on January 26th.
Here are some pictures of Rikarin’s creations that were exposed.
What is the origin of that name ?
Rikarin told me it’s a mix between her family name « Sai » and the Chinese word « Cǎi » which means color. Such a creative and unique name !!
A wonderful message
This was on a wall at the exhibition. It resumes Scǎi’s concept and its creator’s opinion on fashion.
I translated it for you !
“Enjoy to the fullest what « colors » your present self really wants to wear.
To wear colors is to meet a new self, being yourself. And to be a little stronger than usual. I believe color has the power to make people feel good. Color is not only that image we have of a multicolored and flashy rainbow. Monochrome, vivid, pastel, neon, natural … Each person has their own « color ». A color that, when worn, makes them feel happier than when wearing any other color. That color is not necessarily a color you like your whole lifetime. It can vary depending on your age or the mood you are in.That’s why you should enjoy your favorite color now. That will surely lead to enjoying your present self. We aspire to be a brand in which you can find the color that is right for you just now and enjoy wearing it, without forcing a particular color on yourself. May the colors we create bring the right “colors(here written in Chinese)” in your everyday life.
From Scǎi director, Rikarin.”
