Rag & Bone 2011 Fall Collection

By Laura on February 13th, 2011

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.

Check out the full collection in the gallery below.

Trends: Watch & Wear-Public School Drool

By Will Reid on April 6th, 2008


Out of show season, it gets just that bit harder to predict the trends. However, in typical fashion, the industry moves on; someone gets a haircut, a designer does a high-street collaboration, Amy Winehouse is paid $1 million to do a Louis Vuitton gig. In the case of April, we celebrate the 75th anniversary of Lacoste.

René Lacoste turned up at tennis tournaments dressed almost as good as he played and it was from a bet on a crocodile skin suitcase that the famous Lacoste logo came about. This trend report is about the stylish ‘Public School’ look that came about as a result of Mr Lacoste’s personal style. Prepare yourself for a whole new type of playground mafia.

New York Fashion Week Catwalk Report: Rag & Bone

By admin on February 4th, 2008


So New York Fashion Week started this weekend. I think it’s safe to say New York fashion is the most commercial and least trend-led of the major fashion weeks, especially when it comes to menswear. The US has always been more sportswear focussed than its European counterparts, and as the home of capitalism, the US fashion industry is very market-led. All of which means that US designers tend to play it very safe in my opinion and the collections often lack any bite. But then that’s why we have London fashion week: to give us outrageous avant-garde threads that no-one will buy.
