Dallin Chase Designs For City Mice And Country Mice Alike


A lot of designers claim to be interested in both town and country. But when Dallin Chase’s Jason Cauchi ticks off Simon Doonan’s early-nineties windows for Barneys’ then-in-Chelsea flagship and his parents’ homeland of Malta among his inspirations, well, you can believe it. Cauchi—a born-and-bred Manhattanite and FIT alum whose résumé boasts stints at Calvin Klein and Alice Roi—started the line, named after his children, a little over three years ago. Since then, the collection has grown and Cauchi has been creating shrunken lambskin biker jackets (Rihanna’s a fan), sequined minis, and perfect party frocks. This season, the urban-rustic mash-up has a boho feel, like this print handkerchief-hem dress—think Stevie Nicks for the Nolita set. The disparate styles, Cauchi says, makes for a whole greater than the sum of its parts. “I love the idea of humble ingredients like cotton chambray contrasting with a sharp, glossy trim.”

    I totally lovve this look. The combination of the dress with the leather jacket is perfect, the colors are definetly the best match. But i would like it better with a pair of sandals, beside i like the shoes too.
