But first things first, a chat with the man of the hour. How'd it feel to be done for the week? "I haven't slept for two days, but it's good to be with friends," the handsome designer said. "This season was really exact and I really labored over editing it and having it be really specific and cohesive." A job well done as far as we could see! What does Richard do to relax after all the craziness? "I always have lunch with my family," Chai told us. "It kinda brings me back to earth. And then I went home and took a nap, and now I'm here!"
As we said goodbye to Mr. Chai (who just recently inked a deal as creative director of Filson, which he told us he's very excited about), we were stoked to see the space's door open to the eccentric mega-blogger Bryanboy, who tweeted earlier in the evening that he was on a search for the secret to soft hands and feet in the midst of shitty weather--we suggested lotion. "If I put lotion on, everything gets greasy, and that just turns my phone into something else! It's disgusting," Bryan lamented. Good point.
Despite those pressing issues, we know Bryanboy will strive on, at least for the rest of the week--who should we expect to see him wearing? "Everyone!" the blogger told us. "Michael Kors, Marc Jacobs--I'm not one of those people who plans their outfits in advance. I love playing with clothes."
So what does BB think of New York nightlife? "In Europe, people don't give a shit, but in New York, it's really different--everyone is so concerned with what people are going to think."
