Original Penguin

Life must be busy for Richard Chai. Other than being America’s most sought after designer, in 2008 he was nominated for Vogue's Fashion Fund and last year he won the 2010 CFDA Swarovski Award for up and coming menswear designer. He’s also created a capsule collection for American label Target and did we mention he launched Marc by Marc Jacobs?

Now he’s set his sights on creating a limited-edition collection for the classic American lifestyle brand Original Penguin, which was made famous by Hollywood stars from the fifties and sixties such as Bob Hope and the Rat Pack.

Set to launch at Selfridges on March 14, the line is inspired by iconic Original Penguin pieces, re-envisioned by Chai with his signature style of elegant tailoring infused with colour.
