Growing up the youngest daughter of a fisherman, Korean-born Suk Chai's wardrobe was not her own. It was her oldest brother's first, and then the next brother's, and then her sister's - but waiting taught her about timeless silhouettes and the value of materials. After putting herself through design school, the award-winning FIT graduate spent 20 years designing, directing, and producing womenswear for elite brands. Fourteen of those years were spent at Nordstrom, innovating for the luxury department store's clientele.
SCHAI is the designer's personal debut. The collection exhibits the brand's DNA: a dedication to finely milled Italian fabrics and luxe vegetable-dyed animal skins, New York City-based manufacturing (with satellite production in Korea), elegantly modern shapes and cutting-edge architectural lines, and an intrinsic wisdom concerning color, shade, and tone.
SCHAI is the story of seeing oneself, pure and exposed; Salt is the wardrobe of that elemental change.
