Fashion designer Richard Chai has created a limited-edition collection for lifestyle brand Original Penguin.

The Richard Chai for Original Penguin will debut as a Spring 2011 collection at the upcoming Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York, a statement said. Its full collection will be available for Fall 2011.

"I'm very excited to be designing with Original Penguin," said Richard Chai. "I love the idea of searching Penguin's archives for classic vintage pieces to be reworked in a completely unique way."

The complete Fall 2011 collection, to be unveiled in stores September 2011, will offer close to 25 unique pieces priced at US$95 for knits to $400 for outerwear.

"Richard and Original Penguin share an aesthetic - smart, classic clothes with a touch of modern whimsy," says Ann Payne, creative director of Original Penguin. "Richard is creating for us something totally new, while at the same time staying true to the roots of our heritage brand."
