New York:  Richard Chai’s chameleonic nature sees his aesthetic reinvent itself season after season: For Spring, Chai took a trip down memory lane to 90’s New York and it’s suburban anarchy, referencing the cliques and posses – from the jocks to the skaters – injected with his signature loosely tailored, layered handwriting. Chai recollected album covers of the era, adorning t-shirts and collarless Henley’s with bold, abstracted graphics, screaming new-wave rebellion into an otherwise muted colour palette. Tailoring came in oversized, cropped proportions – awkward and brilliantly gawky- in windowpane plaids and seersucker stripes. Bold contrast hand stitching highlighted preppy outerwear and suiting, while ribbed bombers were offered in technical nylon reconstructed with diagonal zippers. This was Chai’s take on a modern clique – these boys don’t play by the rules. – Anna Ross

as yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each
other. If you happen to be interested feel free to
shoot me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Wonderful blog by
the way!

We need a different perception to determine what is causing
