Richard Chai's Spring 2014 LOVE collection at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center had a very distinct feel of sleek layering and a mix of textures and silhouettes. There were skirts paired with coats under a biker jacket. Loose, wide leg pants were matched with even boxier jacket and dresses were worn with pants! While the layering for women had a 'I -just-threw-it-on' vibe, the effect in men's collection was more polished. Poplin shirts, cotton Tees and textured jackets were paired with seersucker shorts and trousers to keep the style polished yet laid back. The color palette ranged from all-white to poppy red to seafoam green, aqua and cornflower blue.Women's collection consisted of pretty blouson dresses and maxi skirts in light fabrics like grenadine silk and georgette, slouchy cropped pants and jacquard jackets in floral patterns. But the high point of the collection surely was the leather jackets that were the result of Chai's collaboration with Andrew Marc. From ink blue bomber jackets to buttery white quilted mottos, the leather gave Richard Chai's Love collection a clean structural look, without that the layering would have looked haphazardly put together.
