Inside the silent chemical reaction of a naked ocean mineral and a potent oxidizer lies a broken open and beautiful vulnerability. Magnified, captured, examined, and absorbed, the moment is at once an unknown mirror and an unfolding universe.

Salt, the Fall 2014 collection from S C H A I, is a portrait of electrical awakening. Designer Suk Chai cut sharp, structured lines from the finest leathers and lined strong shapes with the softest vintage-washed silk. Rich Tollegno heritage Italian cashmere wraps the body even as it seems to detach from the form and float away.

The collection is colored by the earth’s most salient shades - from the green of deeply buried malachite to the raw, crystalline pink of the Alaea that started it all.

S C H A I is the story of seeing oneself, pure and exposed; Salt is the wardrobe of that elemental change.
