Rag & Bone Fall/Winter 2010 RTW
We've come to expect clean from the Rag & Bone label, but today co-designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright unleashed an army of rugged young adventurers down the runway.
"They're the English explorers," explained Wainwright in a backstage interview with press. "You know, the conquest of Everest in the early 1920's and 30's."To be sure, the collection was a major departure from the prim, buttoned-up boarding school look that has defined the brand for the past five years. There was even a slight hint at Cobain-era grunge in the long plaid shirts, chunky cable sweaters and shearling-lined jackets (even camo print made an appearance), but there was still an urban edge in leather paneled pants, tweedy jackets and lace-up workboots.
