Richard Chai x Original Penguin

According to WWD, Richard Chai will be collaborating with Original Penguin on a menswear collection for Spring 2011. This menswear collection will debut this upcoming fashion week and will encompass nine tops that include short and long sleeve polos and cardigans.

As previously mentioned, I love when designers collaborate and generally speaking I'm a huge fan of Richard Chai's menswear line. The collaborative pieces will include design details such as color blocking, dropped armholes and oversized styling that can be found thoughout Chai's signature label. Prices for the collaborative pieces will hover around the $110 mark. Previously, Chai has collaborated with other labels including American Apparel, Keds, Topman, and Target.

Preview a couple sketches from the spring collection:

Each piece is set to contain Penguin's embroidered label along with "RC" monogrammed on the belly of the penguin which is a nice and subtle touch! The collaborative effort will continue through Fall 2011 with about 25-30 pieces in work including outerwear, tops, sweaters, and pants.
