rag & bone CEOs on Collecting Sneakers and Farm Animals, Plus Their Collaborations with Thom Yorke and Uber
Undisputed kings of cool Marcus Wainwright and David Neville of rag & bone are visiting our Nordstrom Pacific Centre store in Vancouver today. The founders of the London-meets-New York line of urban casual wear are cult favorites with laid-back celebrities (their clothes have just recently been spotted on Sienna Miller, Derek Jeter, Demi Lovato and every model and social media darling sporting the brand’s ubiquitous personalized bomber jackets from their fall 2014 runway show).
Even if you can’t meet the dashing Wainwright and Neville for a personal look at their fall 2015 men’s and women’s collections during their Vancouver visit, catch up with them in this Q&A. For those lucky enough to be in the area today for this catered party with live music, personal styling and photo booth, get the details below.
Wainwright: I have a few collections going on: cameras, sneakers and watches. I’m an avid photographer, and in my opinion Leica makes the most perfect, timeless cameras.
My dad got me into watches when I was younger, so I’ve a few that I love. My favorite is a Patek Philippe Nautilus Chronograph, which my wife got me for Christmas. It’s just beautifully designed. I’m also a bit of a sneakerhead and have built up quite the collection over the years.
Neville: I collect antiques for our farm in Bedford, New York, and I also seem to be collecting animals as well—we recently added some horses to the family!
