Looks from rag & bone's Fall 2015 collection

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.

David Neville and Marcus Waingwright of rag & boneAs rag & bone men, do you personally collect anything? What attracted you to these collections?

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!

Carolina Herrera envisioned spring fashion through rose-colored glasses, with a dreamy yet intricately constructed collection. The Frick Museum was the perfect Beaux-Arts backdrop for Herrera’s urbane mix of soft colors and structured, gridlike surfaces held together by sheer strips of fabric. The end result: minimal, elegant looks befitting modern uptown girls.

Carolina Herrera is available in selected stores at our Designer Eveningwear boutiques.

Way out in St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn, Thom Yorke’s music collaboration with the rag & bone show was creating its usual magic. But this time, it felt extra necessary to pay close attention to the ambiance and mood that sound creates for presentations like these.

The show program notes gave a shout-out to the  “12 amazing members of the Brooklyn Youth Chorus, a collective of immensely talented young singers, representing 200 schools citywide, who made their fashion-show debut” accompanying Villain, Yorke’s soundtrack.

The singers were semi-secreted away behind a mesh curtain, and as the models emerged wearing sporty cotton bouclé knit dresses paired with high-top trainers and long-layered sateen bomber jackets with really killer leather sandals, I related the Radiohead singer’s album title and the overall mood to…cat burglars.

I thought of how some clothes—and some nights, and some spaces—make you feel really stealthy and agile. And how then, at those times, you can really perform.

Please do as we did and immerse yourself in the sounds and voices of the evening with this audio recording of the whole darn thing.

Moms know best, so we asked some of the coolest ones we know to give us the skinny on personal style, what motherhood means to them and, of course, what’s on their wish list as May 10 approaches.

Danielle-Chassin-Mothers-Day-High-Line-NORDSTROM

It’s no secret that mothers juggle pretty crazy schedules. For Ottawa, Canada-based Danielle Chassin, that means pulling a day shift as a policy strategist for the Canadian government, caring for her 10-year-old daughter, Ro, and 4-year-old son, Sen, and still finding the time to run a successful side hustle as photographer and lifestyle blogger for her site Hippie in Disguise. She tells The Thread, “I also collaborate with charities, brands and stores to share products I love with my online community.”

White continues to be one of the most popular colors in fashion. Alise’s whites are clean, crisp and sporty. Her grey neoprene coat furthers the modern sportswear theme. A bright yellow bag and red lip infuse the look with a pop of color.

Now this is an outfit I can see myself in. I think I’ve finally found the perfect pair of culottes, thanks to Anna. These military-inspired culottes get an A+, especially when paired with tall suede boots and an oversized sweater. The turtleneck has been ever-present this season, making me glad I invested in a few basics earlier this year! A mini bag adds a hit of color and pattern to this minimalist-chic look.

Anjelica looks like she just walked off a 1970s rock-band tour bus. I am so pleased with the whole ’70s revival trend, especially this Penny Lane-inspired style. Tall boots, a big hat and a shearling-lined coat make for a statement look. A flowing midi dress keeps things light and feminine.

Lainy Hedaya is practically the poster girl for New York style this week. I can’t get enough of her sleek, city ensembles. Today’s black-and-white look is edgy and crazy cool: Her distressed blazer adds interesting texture, while leather bell-bottoms are modern rock ‘n’ roll. Lainy inspires me to expand my style repertoire, and that is truly the best part of Fashion Week!

Sofie Valkiers of the popular blog Fashionata has such a fun style sensibility. She likes to add interesting and unique touches to every outfit. I love this statement look that is somehow both bold and laid-back. Belted waists are everything right now and Sofie’s leather wrap belt creates some definition on this voluminous fur coat. A drawstring bag, menswear-inspired hat and turtleneck sweater hit all the right trend notes.
