The Vermont blue-collar worker meets the vacationing ski bunny, and their ensuing romance results in a collection that is the perfect blend of both worlds. Rag & Bone updates workday looks with luxe materials and downplays ski style with splatters of paint – causing a crossover effect that is wildly fashionable. A variety of engineer’s jackets in sturdy canvas and glossy satin are seen with slim-cut pencil skirts in fuzzy flannel or paint-dripped jersey. From there, the clothes only get hipper and most lust-worthy.
Pairings become trendier, with a street/reggae type of layering that pairs yarn-bombed jackets and vests with muddied skirts and cream-colored leggings. Eighties-style sweaters are given a snugger fit, which is great news for the hipster set who previously had to buy oversized versions at the thrift store. Among these looks are two that stand out from an already stand-out collection: leather cargo sweats and personalized bomber jackets – the latter of which caused quite an outpouring of praise on social media immediately following the show. With cool layering techniques and an unstoppable amount of must-have separates that show a high/low mix of styles, Rag & Bone pushes for the street vote for Fall/Winter 2014.
