“Softly spoken but powerful hues are what seduce you to touch a garment,” asserts local designer Suk Chai. The Korean-born textile master and award-winning FIT graduate debuted her women's clothing line of immaculately fabricated shirts, trousers, coats and skirts to an audience of like-minded, slow fashion followers, quickly gaining a cult following of sartorial devotees drawn to her intrinsic sense of shape and chroma.

At the heart of the Seattle-based line lies a dedication to finely woven Italian textiles and luxe vegetable-dyed hides, a meticulous eye for detail that is carried over into her elegantly cutting-edge designs. Characterized by full-cut trousers, linear outerwear and precisely-cut boxy blouses, the line's modern shapes and detailing portray a distinctly minimalistic statement aesthetic--one that narrates Chai's passion for formulating luxurious and thoughtfully produced wares.
