Rag & Bone Fall 2014 Ready-to-Wear

Rag & Bone did the unthinkable and reinterpreted styles identified by the 1980s. Remember the days of "Bill Cosby" Coogi sweaters, chunky legwarmers, and the time of colored tights underneath almost every look. Fortunately, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville designed innovative pieces that people wish could have only existed during the 80s. They incorporated elements of military and hunting gear into the collection to evolve the look for today.

Marcus Wainwright and David Neville collaborated with Coogi, who's best known for their sweaters worn by Bill Cosby, and created a texturally mix knit that in turn was used for sweaters and skirts. The idea of a redeveloped Crosby sweater may sound horrifying to most; however, Wainwright and Neville were able to create sleek and stylish knits with the fabric.

The shoes in the collection were made for two purposes: durability and style. They designed a thick heeled boot with a loose fit and scrunch top detail, which resembled the same volume and height as legwarmers but in an industrial cool way. The knee-high lace up heel was a definite stand out of the collection. Never have I been more excited to wear heels during a blizzard or rainstorm.

Leave it to Wainwright and Neville to make the collection multidimensional by including bits of 1950s era. The embroidered names resembled the modern T-Birds, which included Georgia Jagger and Joan Smalls. To be a part of the selected Team Rag & Bone requires a fierce look, carefree attitude, and distinguished individuality.
