“It’s really about a balance of hard and soft, masculine and feminine,” said Marcus Wainwright of the Rag & Bone pre-fall collection, which referenced the label’s signatures and bestsellers — tailored tweed jackets, fitted tank dresses, T-shirts with leather details — while serving as a prelude to fall. Wainwright promised a “Sixties, Pan-Am thing” for the main season, which he led into with pop orange used on loose track pants and colorful tweeds. There were also macramé knits and lacing details on leather shorts, all designed with the interim sales floor in mind — for now. Wainwright noted that he and David Neville are feeling the demand for more conceptual, design-focused lineups for the pre-seasons as well as the biannual runway shows. That, along with the development of Rag & Bone’s accessories business, are the big focuses going forward.
