British design duo Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have just showcased their Fall 2011 collection for the NYC-based label rag & bone. They may be better known for their denim heritage, but as this collection demonstrates they are now attempting to take menswear to a whole new level.
Although I am not sure about some of the styling, there is no denying they have brought both expert tailoring and layering together to create a truly original look. The collection was inspired by photos of the Duke of Windsor, and the designers incorporated an array of tartan plaids onto everything from jackets and suits to quilted shirts and kilts.
Personally I love the eclectic colour palette that is used across everything from wool suits to quilted leggings. This is a risky collection, but that said I think there are a number of really strong pieces – possibly even some of rag & bone’s best yet.
