Rag & Bone's finally opening up their own store. It will be, of course, in New York's West Village at 104 Christopher St. according to WWD. Their store opening pretty much establishes the Village as the coolest outdoor mall in the country and probably the only one in which you can watch the designers behind the labels and the models who love them weave in and out of their own shops. The only concern is what happens to the West Village and Meatpacking district stores currently carrying David Neville and Marcus Wainwright's entire collection. Do they get to keep it? Will they get one-off pieces? Or will the boys simply keep everything to themselves? Either way, we can't wait to see what they do with their own space. Another fashion week opening to add to the list?
Rag & Bone Perfect the Cargo Pant
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.
