Richard Chai LOVE Spring – Earlier today, designer Richard Chai debuted the spring 2014 collection for his Richard Chai Love line. This season Chai took inspiration from geometric shapes, trading in hard edges for fluid and soft shapes. Spring’s feminine silhouettes gives way to something more sturdy with the addition of leather jackets from the new Andrew Marc x Richard Chai collaboration. A palette of classic black and white is interspersed with natural-inspired shades of sky blue, cornflower blue, mint and aqua.
For Sport – Designer Richard Chai based his resort 2013 “Love” collection off the concept of a woman wearing Nike sneakers with stylish workout apparel. Modeled by Mackenzie Drazan, the transitional season transforms exercise staples such as the jogging suit, hoodie and shorts into high-end, street-wear apparel. The slouchy silhouettes come in a mix of neutrals and bright hues such as ivory, electric blue, army green and turquoise with grungy or color blocked patterns. No doubt, the Richard Chai woman aims to keep it casual and cool for the upcoming resort season. / Photos by Jason Kim, Styling by Tom van Dorpe
