My first assignment post-CFDAs was to visit the studio of winners Marcus Wainwright and David Neville. The occasion? Rag & Bone's Resort and Holiday collections.
Unsurprisingly, there was plenty to love.
The designers carried on with the wooly, layered military theme from Fall 2010, featuring lots of gorgeous knitted sweaters, exaggerated boyfriend blazers in plaid and tweed, a pair of tweed cargo sweatpants that looked too comfortable to resist, and a red silk work shirt that could be dressed up or down, much like the rest of the collection.
The standout, however, was the new cargo pant, which is part of their basics line and available at the end of this summer.
Now, I certainly enjoy the J.Brand cargo from afar, but the trendy zipper at the ankle keeps me from buying. Conversely, Rag & Bone's cargo is long and lean with little embellishment. Much further up my alley.
Enjoy the look book, but be warned: your credit card is in danger of being used!
