MUST COOL
RICHARD CHAI’S MOTO-BOMBER
Upscale Americana from Andrew Marc

These days, luxury is where the action is. With an eye toward taking his highly popular brand to the upper reaches of fashion, Andrew Marc has enlisted designer Richard Chai as creative consultant, and the transition from department store to runway has been seamless. Our favorite result of the collaboration is called the Knox, a unique, lightweight hybrid of a motorcycle jacket and a bomber that sells for $1,195. “Andrew Marc is an American heritage brand that has a sexiness behind it and a certain toughness,” says Chai, a winner of the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s Swarovski Award for menswear, in 2010. “In designing my first collection with them, I wanted to do leather styles that translated those characteristics, but not in literal moto-jacket silhouettes. The aim was to maintain those core brand elements of Andrew Marc and update them in new, modern ways.”  —Frederick Marfil
