In Fall 2004, Richard Chai took Fashion Week by storm with the launch of his eponymous line of gorgeously wearable garments. Chai was by no means new to the New York fashion scene, having designed for Donna Karan, Geoffrey Beene, and Marc Jacobs (where he helped to launch the Marc by Marc Jacobs line). And his critically acclaimed line, a favorite of both retailers and the press, earned him an Ecco Domani Fashion Foundation award a year later in 2005.
Now, three years later, Chai is taking another leap forward by making his sophisticated style available to all of us with a line for Target. Like the rest of Chai’s work, the Target collection is sophisticated, wearable, and decidedly feminine. Chai’s target line has been out for over a week now, but we finally got a chance to go try it on in-store. Here’s our five favorite pieces:
Richard Chai Rose Print Top | $22.99 at Target
