Last of Bryant Park, Richard Chai Menswear.

Posted in fashion week., new york city. by modman on February 19, 2010

I pretty much fell in love with this collection backstage, but having every look come down the runway solidified my initial feelings. Being able to see most of the details from the second row was eye-opening and there were many details to pay attention to, especially the cuts. The arm gloves carried over from the womens show to top the collection off. The laid-back suit started off the show on a relaxed note and had a signature Richard Chai look about it. The shawl leather jacket is a play off the classic leather/shawl cardigan shape. For those that can afford to upgrade to a new look, this piece in umber will be a fresh update to your wardrobe. The collar of look three is wide than a usual coat and the length is accentuated by the longer length of the grey cardigan. Look four is a ply off the first leather jacket but a hood takes the place of the shawl.

I especially loved the plaids in this collection, especially the half-plaid shirts and the smoky plaid button-ups. His outerwear pieces like the parka, knits and other blazers were slightly tweeked for a more modern look. There were also a pair of pleated pant I got to see at the showroom. I must find them! Congrats Richard and Daniel on an amazing menswear collection, the best to date!
