“We wanted to effectively strip back timeless pieces and inject them with a purer, more modern aesthetic.” – Marcus Wainwright
The influences from this collection are not subtle and do not intend to be as Rag and Bone present wearable separates for SS14.
With inspiration coming from traditional French and Japanese worker clothes, contemporary stylingis combined with heritage pieces to create sleek full looks.
These remain in touching distance of their inspiration with flashes of blue, synonymous with the iconic French workmans jacket, a constant reminder throughout.
Rag and Bone aren’t expecting a 2014 Spring Summer heat wave showing a range of heavy fabrics including wax coated poplin and coated canvas on therunway.
Even the more optimistic shorts and shirt looks retain the durability of traditional workmen wear. Hats playfully punctuate the collection, casting aside momentarily the labourer aesthetic in favour of an organic kimono inspired print.
