Richard Chai SS15 is a collection that brings umph to the fashion souls of New Yorkers! But, don’t be dismayed as you don’t have to be a New Yorker to wear these garments. If you like the Big Apple’s ease of fashion or perhaps the androgynous look or the fusion of formal and informal hems or layering within the Summer then Richard Chai will capture your attention!
This collection features the usual Summer colour tones but, enchanced to another level through it’s well thought out use of fabrics. So let me break down a list for you and if it you tick them off as a “yep, that’s me” then pay attention.
-layering light textures
-mixing various colour tones
-not afraid to mix the classical designs with the new androgynous modern designs
-love a bit of stripes and graphic printed designs styled together
-always looking to push fashion to that next level away from the commercial spotlight
If those were ticked off then you need to see what is to follow! Before I show you let me just do a quick overview on the 10 year running brand and what they have to offer.
Richard Chai SS15 Collection features pieces suitable for Spring, Summer and Autumn-how great is that in regards to moneys worth! This collection focuses more on the structured shapes and how the fabrics choosen still conveys a fluidity to how it elegantly moves. Watching this label grow since 2004, I am always excited to see it’s growth as the collections come and pass. Richard Chai SS15 still features it’s signature pieces like the jackets and maxi dresses.
The designs are so strong in both the womens and mens collection, for me I find this very rare in labels. But not one collection out dos the other gender. Women with a laid back yet powerful statuses (whether it be socially or within employment) would definitely suit this. As for the men I think it would be hard in the UK to find a man adopt the complete style however, men with a laid back and confident personality will want a piece or two. Especially those within Soho London but, it has to be a man who is fashion hungry and comfortable with his sexuality.
