Rag & Bone Takes Flight for Fall/Winter ’13

rag & bone’s David Neville and Marcus Wainwright played with the concept of uniformity for fall ’13.

The design duo referenced the Navy-inspired uniforms of Pan Am flight attendants in the 50s and 60s, developing a collection that honed in on the idea of “modern military aviation,” according to Wainwright.

Check out our bird’s-eye view of both the collection run-through and the backstage scene.

Makeup lead Gucci Westman juxtaposed the masculine designs of the collection with a soft, modern look.

One of the highest honors a model can receive during Fashion Week is the request from a designer to open and/or close a show. Esther Heesch, who can be seen in the See By Chloe spring ’13 campaign, opened the show at rag & bone, donning a black rubberized tweed ‘Chelsea’ jacket and black leather quilted ‘Woodstock’ pants.

South Korean model Ji Hye Park with Elite Models closed the show sporting a black leather bonded funnel neck sweater, moss green cotton trench trousers and a pilot clutch. “Rag & Bone is one of my favorite brands—I am so lucky to be here and to walk in the show. I love doing Fashion Week in New York. I feel so gorgeous and confident when I’m walking on the runway,” said Ji Hye, who is fresh off an amazing couture season in Paris, walking for both Dior and Chanel.
