Rag & Bone defied category, once again, with a true catwalk show. The show had no one defining moment or item that speaks to “theme,” yet showcased dark colors and this designer’s unique take on English style.
From trench coats to parkas, outerwear took center stage with non-traditional stitching and loose, deconstructed design. There was a bit of focus on comfort over form when it came to the oversized blouses and the long sweater dresses that walked the runway. With no theme to speak of, it’s easy to see how the brand’s popularity is the result of simply cool clothing that is super wearable.
The men’s collection featured clothing meant for daily urban wear, which we can always appreciate. Elevated essentials are marking their territory this season.
All in all the show gave us some idea that Rag & Bone is still producing high-quality pieces. They gave us a fashion show that stood on its own, with no need for special effects or elaborate theme. The show brought us back to the classic New York Fashion Week heritage. Their pieces prove that clothes can look great and still be utilitarian.
