Richard Chai Spring Summer 2009 Womens First Impressions

runway photos courteous of photographer stan honda

I was fortunate to attend Richard Chai's spring summer 2009 runway show this morning at Bryant Park, and I must say it was a fantastic collection. Chai's attention to detail was seen in all the pieces and how beautifully the all of that silk he used flowed in the right places and grabbed in just the right places as well. The color palette started in beautiful creams and whites with amazing cropped blazers and a terrific deconstructed cream trench. Chai then dug deeper into the spectrum of color and the collection flowed through with mints, magentas, pewters, prints, the best was the black. My favorite pieces where the black jackets and the black silk crinkled chiffon spiral pleated skirt. Overall I though it was a very well done collection with great interchangeable wearable pieces complemented by the stunning dresses. Very nicely done Richie. Talk about a busy year debuting mens in Paris, Target Go-International collection, and all the while keeping his women's line in order and looking exceptional.
