After sending out a strong women’s collection for his contemporary Love line, all eyes were on Richard Chai to produce another winner for his namesake men’s line. For fall, Chai mainly stuck to a grey palette with some strong outerwear pieces — a peacoat with a raised belt and plaids on a parachute coat looked fresh. That said, his use of coat flannels for pants felt heavy, and the bird prints on shirts and pajama pants didn’t make much sense with the rest of the lineup. They brought a sense of disarray that wasn’t there in his women’s show. Perhaps it’s time to bring a little more of that Love to his men.
