Continuing coverage of New York Fashion Week, we take a look at Richard Chai for Original Penguin. The relationship between brand and designer kicks off with something of a teaser, just 8 pieces coming for Spring in anticipation of a full 25 piece collection for Autumn 2011. “Richard and Original Penguin share an aesthetic – smart, classic clothes with a touch of modern whimsy,” says Ann Payne, Creative Director of Original Penguin. “Richard is creating for us something totally new, while at the same time staying true to the roots of our heritage brand.”
