Working between Seattle and New York, Suk Chai is a Korean-born designer who focuses on crafting timeless silhouettes with the strong tailoring of Italian and Japanese textiles through her personal brand, Schai. As the youngest daughter of a fisherman inheriting her siblings’ wardrobe, one after the other, Suk understood at a very young age the value of patience, quality of fabrics and construction. With her twenty years experience in the fashion industry and her strong personal beliefs, Suk is a designer and artist who does not compromise over beauty, longevity and comfort. Schai offers tailored and architectural lines with asymmetrical finishes, surprising details, powerful hues in the chosen color palettes turning the familiar into the splendid. Each garment celebrates women’s strength and confidence. We, at Another Garde, are in awe of the quiet boldness and beauty of their collections and vision.
"Style is not a chasing trend"
‘Each season 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 Asia), elegantly modern shapes and cutting-edge architectural lines, and an intrinsic wisdom concerning color, shade, and tone’. Suk also refines and reinterprets her most popular pieces — wide cropped trousers, linear coats, origami capes, and boxy, effortless tops in luxurious materials- to continue the conversation with her clients.
