Richard Chai Spring/Summer 2015
Our three favorite things from today’s presentation…
1. The styling. Look, a big-deal show with big-deal celebs (oh, hey Nick and Joe Jonas) in the big-deal #NYFW tents damn well better have great styling. But even by that standard, Richard Chai’s looks today were both compelling and covetable. T-shirt sleeves rolled up just so to reveal a model’s tattoo; women’s trench coats slouched just so to showcase the dress underneath; and… black socks. Worn with sneakers. Pulled up to mid-shin level. Yes, #normcore—or #dadcore?—has penetrated Fashion Week. God help us all.
2. The shirts. Sleeveless button-downs. Sleeveless polos with ribbed waists. Consider this permission to exercise your right to bare arms in 2015.
3. The ladies. Okay, we’ll admit it: nothing wrong with spending a little time admiring beautiful women wearing beautiful clothes between scoping out menswear. Nothing wrong at all.
