Richard Chai Love: Boy meets girl at Fashion Week
It was a quirky gender-bending affair at Richard Chai Love where the designer played with proportion as models sauntered in oversized blazers and menswear reefer coats in tweedy fabrics topping flowery chiffon palazzo pants.
There were huge, daddy (as in your, maybe a little overweight, daddy) corduroy pants paired with trim blouses.
Smart, textured stripes ran in different directions and came in hues of charcoal and black as well as a pretty blue and raspberry series.
A wispy organic shibori print was a nice foil to some of the structure, and for seekers of that weather-busting coat – Chai’s utilitarian parka featuring huge, detachable-looking pockets that encircled the waist.
Somehow, even untucked shirts read polished yet easy.
