Fresh, clean and preppy are the boys and girls of Richard Chai Love. His spring 2014 collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week was full of easy silhouettes in white, brighter pastels and a summering version of camouflage. Variegated stripes were mixed with a warm weather moto jacket alternative.
Richard Chai was briefly a classmate of mine at Parsons. He dropped out to do his own thing and I think it paid off. His look is simple, privileged, like the crew from Gossip Girl went out to the country and played lawn tennis. Accessories were minimal. Boat shoes for guys, comfortable, but chic sandals for the ladies. Hair was combed back for a simple classic look.
Not fan of front row stalking, but the Geek in me couldn't help but be giddy at Wednesday Addams (Christina Ricci) and Spock (Zachary Quinto) sitting next to each other... (Next to Zachary were the Jonas Brothers, but not nearly as excited about them).
