Rag & Bone is always cool, and their spring 2012 collection was no exception. See: a soundtrack created specially for the show by Thom Yorke; a runway that actually rose before the first model walked out to become a ceiling of lightbulbs; an A-list model casting that included Arizona Muse, Karmen Pedaru and Joan Smalls; a front row that included Dwyane Wade (sitting next to Anna Wintour) La La Vasquez with hubby Carmelo Anthony, and Mary J. Blige; and quirky ’70s California surfer inspired clothes from designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright in cobalt, orange sherbet and lemon yellow, layered to perfection.
Because it’s all about the styling with Rag & Bone. Surfer ponchos were layered over athletic inspired pants, a safety orange bikini peeked through a sheer floral lilac dress, blazers and jackets were draped over sheer and wide-mesh tops. Hair was tucked into chokers and many models donned glasses that looked like pilot goggles–so if they wanted to hop off their ’70s surfboards and fly a propeller plane, they were ready to do it in style.
