There’s nothing NOT to <3 about the uh-mazing designer Richard Chai. If you’re a dedicated MTV Style reader (as you should be!) you know that Richie bangs out some seriously salivating sartorial haute sauce, whether it be via NYFW runways or the cement, stiletto-stomping catwalks of SoHo. Newsflash: The 2010 CFDA champion (who received the Swarovski Award for Menswear, NBD) is not at all afraid of some floral pattern action, and we’re not afraid of opening a few credit cards to seriously spice up our closet’s life. And can we all please agree on something incredibly important? His 10/10 dreamboat rating. *swoon* (I may or may not have spotted/creeped on Chai on many a downtown, strobe-light flashing dance floor, mesmerized by his effortlessly cool steez AKA immaculate face whilst I’m getting my Robyn-inspired stilettos (okay, Converse)-and-broken-bottles on.) So, put your hot dog down y’all because for this especially special Memorial Weekend Favorite Things’ edish, RICHARD FREAKIN’ CHAI (!!!) spills all of the fashion-y beans (see: Linda Farrow sunnies, a sparkly Rolex, Vita Coco Coconut H20 as a hangover helper). YUM!
