Richard Chai and Original Penguin will launch a co-branded men’s line for the spring and fall 2011 seasons. Marketed under the Richard Chai for Original Penguin label, the first looks will debut at Chai’s upcoming men’s runway show during New York Fashion Week.
“I thought Penguin was a really interesting brand with a lot of heritage, which is important to me,” said Chai of the collaboration. “It’s iconic with a lot of history — all these Hollywood people in the Fifties and Sixties wore it, like Bob Hope and the Rat Pack and Clint Eastwood — but there’s also something witty and antiestablishment to the brand, which I think works with my sensibility.”
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
