Summary: I always look to Chaiken for a clean and classic collection. The show did not show anything new, but we were seeing beautiful, wearable clothing reminiscent of Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday. The coats at Chaiken are always cut beautifully and this collection included a few light versions, shirtdresses, and safari jackets in taupe-iced linen. Everything looked pulled together. The collection included a selection of easy silk and halter dresses, as well as crisp light silk voile A-lined dresses with a fold in the front. The models wore large brimmed light straw black hats to add classic elegance.
