Backstage at Rag & Bone Fall 2014

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.

En route.

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.

The walk-through.

Killing time. (The book he’s reading is titled Speculative Everything.)

A closer look at the clothes. We’re liking the structured rain gear, densely woven sweaters, slim no-break trousers, and minimalist footwear.

Lights, camera…

An enviable multi-tasker, Ms. Silva even cut together a killer
video of her experience at the show:
