Since Nathan Bogle exited as co-founder of Rag & Bone in 2006, he’s watched from the sidelines as the brand has rocketed to prominence and opened a string of 10 stores, including its latest flagships on Madison Avenue in April and London last month.
Now Bogle is back in the game with his own men’s label, called Jardine, which will launch at retail for spring. If he has any pangs of regret about departing Rag & Bone — or feels any pressure to live up to his former brand’s remarkable recent success — he doesn’t express it during a preview of his new line. “They’ve done a fantastic job. I commend them all the way and I see the work they’re doing and I think it’s great,” he observed of former partners Marcus Wainwright and David Neville. “I’m not in touch with them. We do our own things now.”
