For Spring 2014, Rag & Bone designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville stripped their collection down to the essentials, presenting an easy-to-wear line that combined ’90s athleticism with modern silhouettes. Most notably among the offerings were the brand’s beloved blazers, which took on sculptural elements including back cutout details. Slim-cut overalls and net-covered slip dresses on the otherhand, upped the collection’s intrigue. Although grounded heavily in black and white, the lineup did include pops of pastel pink, lavender and aqua shades, while prints remained almost entirely out of sight. As for the accessories, the designer duo added a new mix of crossbody hobos and louche top-handle totes, while shoes ranged from flat forms and chunky wedges to ankle-wrap sandals. Much to our delight, ‘One to Watch‘ pick, Sam Rollinson, had the honor of opening this year’s show, followed closely thereafter by Tilda Lindstam, Liu Wen, Sui He, Nadja Bender, Caroline Brasch Nielson, Jasmine Tookes, Julia Nobis and closer, Kati Nescher among others. As always, the Rag & Bone show gave us a lot to look forward too on the style front next season!
It’s the show that everyone is talking about- the Fiesta that set fire to the runway today at Lincoln Center lighting up social media conversations with the racy hashtag #DTF. Inspired by influential Latin American women like Bianca Jagger, Frida Kahlo, Caroline Issa and Alice Dellal, Minkoff reimagines vision of Latin America with a modern flare. The collection was clad with macramé and embroidery juxtaposed against sporty moto jacketsreminiscent of our high school varsity sports team (sans the drama). Lindsey Wixon opened the show in an embroidered ensemble and closed wearing a romantic floral day dress in an electric neon palette that left us wanting to take that long-overdue trip south of the border.
