2012 New York S/S Fashion Week: Richard Chai Love

Richard Chai is known for his downtown cool aesthetic that always has a fresh, feminine spin, and for Spring 2012 the clothes had a distinctly preppy tone. The Richard Chai girl has an inner tomboy — he offered up crisp collared shirts with peekaboo shoulders, cotton blazers in bright orange, and floral biker shorts in response. Known for his layering prowess, some of the most interesting outfits showed jackets with a chiffon back, showing off a draped tank underneath, or silky floral pants.

  • Trends: Sporty, florals, silk pants, cut outs, layering, tropical prints.
  • Colours: Peach, lavender, purple, cobalt, green.
  • Key Piece: A sheer-backed jacket, the floral silk pants.
  • Who Would Wear It: Poppy Delevigne, who sat in the front row for the show, and offbeat cuties like Ellen Page, who would dig the miniskirt-over-pants look.
