Masculine notes have always defined the unique style of Rag & Bone and it’s due to these vibes that the brand has been enjoying such a big love among young fashionisers. David Neville and Marcus Wainwright return to their English roots unveiling the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2015 collection lookbook shot in Notting Hill and featuring Olympia Campbell. The choice of the location for the shoot wasn’t accidental, as the concept behind this one-of-a-kind collection was “old Englishman pajamas” as explained by Wainwright. “It’s old school, but very feminine,” he added.
The pajama style has been on for a few seasons already and surprisingly it continues enjoying a big popularity among It girls. Maybe it’s because of the fact that such pieces come literally drenched in a comfy and practical style, which encourages lounging throughout the day too in this hectic life. It’s unique, fun and easy, still it may look a bit queer in the streets, especially if you have bed hair. Nevertheless, the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2015 collection wins one’s admiration with its contagious relaxed style, one that we badly need for day-to-day looks.
From the color palette chosen to the prints and the slouchy designs, the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2015 collection breathes pajama style in every small detail present. The collection opens with more Seventies inspired looks, including the button-up A-line denim skirt reaching the tea length and coming matched with a vintage denim jacket. This is one of the few looks in the collection that haven’t been derived from pajamas. The perfect layering techniques make the simplistic designs looks so much more inspirational and statement-making, and the different tones of blues give a lovely laid-back attitude to the overall scene. Talking of the blues and layering, we should single out the slouchy cobalt blue pajama pants worn under a knee-length V-neck navy blue knitted robe, which in its turn is topped with a slightly longer Grandma-style knitted vest in the same navy blue tone and with pretty white floral patterns.
Paneled-silk dresses, crinkled cotton shirtdresses, slouchy pants and pajama sets with the specific pajama prints and in colors like navy and burgundy come right after, making the model look like she has just got out of bed. The deliberate barely dare makeup and the textured bed hair finish off this range of looks just ideally. We can also find sharp coats, crisp white and black looks that are more into the masculine mixed with feminine fashion, rather than the main theme of the Rag & Bone pre-fall 2015 collection. On the whole, it’s an extremely relaxed collection flooded with stylish clothes for “sleepwalkers”.
