Love is Love’s Reward – Richard Chai Love and Richard Chai Men’s Fall/Winter 2012 Collection
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, Richard Chai’s Love collection will make you fall in love all over again. Add a splash of stripes and red floral prints to your ensemble, and you’re sure to ready to greet Fall 2012 and be ready for whatever mysteries it holds. While the collection wasn’t exactly color-deprived, it was a departure from the bright prints and girly frocks of Spring 2012 (including models wearing dramatic, blue lipstick).
Chai’s choice of two tone grey’s, hints of maroon and blue fusion graced the stripes on the women’s blazer’s and men’s lengthy sweaters. Red floral prints hovered over a black background on wide leg palazzo pants and dresses.
The look is far from girlish, but fitted mondo wool trousers paired with boxy loose fitted coats were the talk of the runway.
Kevin Ryan and Frank Rizzieri for Aveda gave the models, both men and women an airy ruffled up style. While James Kaliardos for MAC painted the faces for both the boys and girls with bare-skinned tones.
