The Fall/Winter 2014-15 Richard Chai collection walked the New York City runway with a cool and collected attitude. This season, Chai was all about outerwear, especially coats. We get yet another retro feel with the camel colors, yet a lot of cool, modern looks with beanie hats, vertical striped pants paired with more classic coat silhouettes.
Patches, squares and random fabric changes were also a common theme. Although he also showed garments for women, menswear seems to be Chai’s true niche. And back to the vertical stripe…what man (or woman, for that matter) doesn’t want to look taller and more elongated! Viva the vertical stripe! We also seem the popular trend of layering here, with blazers and leather jackets, striped shirts and overcoats.
Finally, Chai presents his collaboration with Andrew Marc, which is leather outwear…we hope this collaboration is an ongoing one!
