What better way to herald the beginning of New York Fashion Week than with a little love? A little Richard Chai Love, that is. Chai hasn't strayed too far from his trademark feminine roots, and the result is downright gorgeous. I was happy, giddy even, to see Chai's version of delicate layering as it practically floated down the runway! Highlights: sheer pants billowing under light gray shorts, perfectly tailored boyfriend blazers paired with soft blue tees and maxiskirts, and navy bandeau tops peeking through nude maxidresses.
As a bonus, models wore metallic oxfords for just the right amount of accessory sparkle. As the finale looks filed down the runway, I spotted Style Rookie's Tavi Gevinson and Phillip Lim across the way. I'm sure they will wholeheartedly agree that Chai whipped up a dreamy collection of Spring 2011 must haves.
