Richard Chai Love


New York: Now in its third season, Richard Chai’s lower-priced Love label is beginning to find its voice. The taupes and greys that appeared for his light-handed fall collection became altogether ethereal for spring with airy layers and featherweight fabrics. Translucent nude organza was used as a base layer for nearly every look, appearing for pants under knee-length shorts and for tanks or tops under dresses and jackets or over sporty bandeaus. Ribbed knit cummerbunds also hinted at an active influence, while black leather pieces like a cropped tank added an edgy element. Ultra-wide-leg pants were a highlight, taking the F/W 10 trend to the next level, and some styles with ruching at the waist appeared to be skirts at first glance. The show ended on a light note, with dove grey and white pieces made from a Swiss Dot fabric, injecting a bit of sweetness and femininity.
