Who You Can Learn It From: Richard Chai
Korean, Fashion Designer
Designer Richard Chai made a name for himself with a laid-back yet tailored approach to menswear. The T-shirts and buttondowns were slim without feeling constricting, and the colors were muted without being boring. He eschewed logos and heavy branding in favor of fit and versatility, very in tune with his personal style. It works so well the individual pieces combine to form an overall aesthetic that's stylish but you can't quite put your finger on what makes it stick out—you know, kind of like a minimal Voltron.
