Fall Fashion Preview
Rag & Bone fall collection salutes Cosby and working-class hipsters
Rag & Bone designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are mixing it up for fall, with a lot of different looks for the girl who doesn't want to try hard to look hip. When the collection was shown at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week a few months ago, Georgia May Jagger (the gorgeous gap-toothed daughter of Mick Jagger and Jerry Hall) strolled down the runway in a cream satin bowling shirt, with her name embroidered on it, and chocolate twill slack, setting the tone for the breezy collection.
There aren't a lot of office clothes in this line, which arrives in stores in a few weeks. Instead Wainwright and Neville are in a casual, working-class mode, with buffalo check jackets, shearling work vests, paint-splattered skirts and pants, cropped sweaters, and ribbed leggings.
The duo even salutes '80s-era Bill Cosby, with squiggly patterned sweaters inspired by those worn by the comedian in The Cosby Show. Wainwright and Neville teamed with Coogi, the original creator of the Cosby sweater, to update the textured knit for pencil skirts and cropped sweaters.
But R&B fans looking for something more formal to wear don't have to panic just yet. The duo includes a smattering of their signature boyfriend blazers and jackets in Prince of Wales plaid and pinstripes for the young woman who wants to dress up a little bit more for any occasion.
