NYFW: Richard Chai Love Fall/Winter 2014

Richard Chai Love Board

  • Who’s the Designer: Richard Chai Love
  • What’s the Inspiration:  Texture.  Texture in a sense of the tactile effect on clothes.  What made Chai’s take on texture compelling was that he put some focus on its visual impact—for example, the way fuzzy mohair or Miyake-esque pleats could blur a print.
  • Why it’s relevant: Textured fabrications such as fur, leather, fringe, brocades, etc.  dominated the runways.  While these fabrications are nothing new to the fall/winter season it’s the new approach that these textures are are being utilized that is important.
  • Where to wear it: This collection was jam packed with great pieces for mixing and matching for a downtown cool look for the office if you work in a new start up or perfect for drinks at the hottest lounge in town.
