The Rag & Bone pre-fall 2014 collection is something more than a spectacular synthesis of drives and approaches, and even more than a meet of sporty with youthful chic. What the impressive Rag & Bone pre-fall 2014 collection is composed of can be called an ingenious mishmash of all that’s cool and looks good. Talking about this collection, Marcus Wainwright mentioned, “We wanted to go English.” Indeed, there is nothing else suitable to describe the main channels of the style flow of this collection. The obvious inspiration of these pieces comes from early Nineties British street wear style, which is best demonstrated in Nigel Shafran’s “Teenage Precinct Shoppers” series.
So talking about the main looks, we can probably start with the cute combination of a bit slouchy pants, which come combined with an interesting transparency detail on the sleeveless black top chosen to match the pants. The comfy black handbag is just what this duo needs for being perfectly complete. Later, it’s all about the relaxed chic, here put with an elongated and loose outerwear option, topping a classy white shirt. This is followed by an all-sporty combo of a bomber jacket, combined with slightly cropped skinny pants, a white shirt, and a medium sized handbag.
The transformations of all-white looks are also here, introduced as a duo of an elongated jacket topping a white top with white skirt, having very scrupulous and eye-catching lace patterns on. Sporty in white options is represented by a combo of slim jogging pants with a white and simple T-shirt, and a sporty jacket. The lace with fishnet resembling designs are extended to the level of a cute top, paired with knee length shorts of monochrome white. Finally, it’s the sleeveless waistcoat-resembling piece paired with some slouchy pants that finish up the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2014 collection.
The most important principle of the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2014 collection is that in spite of being sporty, these looks are not intended for the gym. “It’s English active non-activewear. These people never did any exercise in these suits”, says Wainwright. Thus, being absolutely comfy and wearable, they are ready to come up with the unique and exclusive looks of yours.
