Richard Chai Love FW 2011

Richard Chai was this asian guy helping launching Marc by Marc Jacob. He made it to top 10 CFDA/Vogue Fashion fund Awards in 2008. Four seasons ago he launched his own line, Richard Chai Love collection.

He showed his FW 2011 collection (fourth Love collection) in New York this season. You could hardly miss the grey tone, the tweed coats and the flowiness of both the trousers and long skirts. He had a very feminine silhoutte overall, but still some pieces who came down the runway had a masculine touch on it. The models came down the runway with oversized jackets, trousers under the skirts (making it feel like we're going back in time) and coats/jackets on coats/jackets.

From wide pants, the collection did a 180° and turned into a collection with enormous tight maxi dresses and then again in some more comfortable and loose dresses with patterns in a shade of purple.

As I love New York and the style overthere, I can say that some of the pieces in this collection looked cheap, not well-executed and not so innovative and creative for that matter. As an established designer in New York, I think it was an ok collection, not his worst though.
