New York Fashion Week is under way, and at the front-end of things is English-bred, New York-based brand Rag & Bone.
We were lucky enough to have photographer Faith Silva on-site at Tuesday night’s show. Keep reading to see her photo journal from behind the scenes at Rag & Bone Fall/Winter 2014.
While design duo Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have sometimes leaned more toward old-school tailoring in past Fall collections and new-wave streetwear in the Spring, they amalgamated those two elements more seamlessly than ever before in the FW14 collection presented two nights ago—in which three-piece, peak-lapel, chalk-stripe suits sat alongside sculptural, weather-impervious anoraks in perfect harmony. Devoid of gimmicks, “It’s about the purity of menswear,” said Wainwright, summing things up quite accurately.
It seems Rag & Bone menswear is so popular—even amongst women—that designers Wainwright and Neville chose to send a few stunning female models down the runway in men’s clothes. No arguments here.
Killing time. (The book he’s reading is titled Speculative Everything.)
