For resort, or “October/November” as the season is known internally at Rag & Bone, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville were intent on clarity. Their collection was a lineup of true buy-now-wear-now pieces for the season in which stores are carrying them. “It’s just about blaring on the key Rag & Bone tenets of design,” said Wainwright during a preview. “Our girl doesn’t really need a caftan for this time of year.”
To that end, proper English tailoring was represented by a tweed suit, a blanket-striped tailored jacket and a comfy cool shearling coat with a clever, coordinating hand-warmer/handbag. Streetwear and sport was supplied by a bright blue and black bomber jacket and a kelly green tracksuit, and men’s wear via a floating, twisted cable sweater in camel and red cashmere. They were indeed pieces ready to be worn out of the store and onto the street.
