Rag & BoneSpring Summer 2015 New York

Runway Review
9/9/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are in complete harmony with the Rag & Bone customer and they know that it's of the utmost importance to both submit to her desires and to augment her everyday wardrobe. Their Spring collection was not submerged in the florals and swimwear that so many other brands are steeped in for the season, but in neutral-hued functionality: roomy blazers for work and play, linen hoodies for comfortable jetsetting, track shorts for weekend errands, and crossbody bags and slides for getting around town with ease.

Rag & Bone loves a menswear moment and the brand was clearly having pangs of nostalgia with 80's and 90's-derivative silhouettes: long-line vests, boxy fits, pleated trousers, and a roll-sleeve trench. Wainwright and Neville want suiting to become an effortless part of their customers' wardrobes and these designs felt simple and smooth.

Athletic-inspired looks flowed through including ponchos, crop tops that mimicked long-line sport bras, drawstring-waist jackets for an elevated spin on the windbreaker, and a knee-length cutoff sleeve tunic. Leather track shorts tapped into the brand's signature with edge, while a plethora of ties highlighted on most designs laid bare Rag & Bone's wearable soul.

Sport-loving isn't at all incongruous with dress-loving, thus the frocks that punctuated the assortment felt the most energetic. An ivory sleeveless number with a plunging neckline and relaxed fit was minimalism at its height, while a white sheer dress might have dared to bare, but will be perfect for transitional layering.

Ease was the message here: no frills or complications. Despite the pared-down nature of most of the ensembles at hand, it all fit in with the Rag & Bone aesthetic: an important attitude in fashion that lesser brands all over the world wish they could emulate.
