Rag & Bone Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

What happens when you combine the athleisure trend with denim? With their pre-fall 2016 collection, Rag & Bone’s creative directors Marcus Wainwright and David Neville just answered this question, unveiling a practical trans-seasonal collection that does not, however, give up on style. The Rag & Bone pre-fall 2016 line-up could be regarded as the safe place, wherein finding the accurate items, depending on the weather, is easier than ever.

Rag & Bone Pre-Fall 2016 Collection

Regarding the main materials used and practicality, Wainwright created something very interesting and in line with this year’s sustainable fashion development goals and discussions. Although not being a sustainable label, Rag & Bone’s Wainwright and Neville know the weather is indeed changing and with such changes the fashion industry has to stay focused, thus creating collections that also help their customers meet their personal needs.

Besides the sustainable issues, some of you may also be surprised to see Rag & Bone’s creative directors use denim pieces in their signature collection. Well, it wasn’t apparently their choice, but rather that of their customers’: “They were asking for it,” Wainwright declared, revealing that the British duo really cares for and listens to its customers.

The collection also reflects the cosmopolitan woman’s inner desires, as the cuts and lines utilized are precisely meant to make the body feel at ease instead of being too tight-fitted and uncomfortable. In the perfect Rag & Bone style, this pre-fall collection keeps on proposing clean cuts and classic, tailored pieces, which have been translated to Wainwright and Neville’s modern approach to fashion. That’s why it features a minimalistic style and safe androgynous pieces, which also let the dance begin for the brand’s relaxed lines.

The collection also features cool razor-sharp shirts and tops, which have been paired with one of this and next fall’s major trends: culottes. Perfect for the transitional season, the flattering hemlines and versatile shapes make it possible to play both with different styles and materials, as well as add a quirky touch to any outfit. Against all odds, those culottes, especially when high-waisted, are perfect even for petite girls, not to mention their practicality when it comes to the unpredictable autumnal weather.

Rag & Bone particularly enjoyed playing with this type of pants, creating extremely well-tailored denim culottes, too. Such pants have been thus paired with all kinds of tops, from denim shirts to off-shoulder blouses, which also means that the total-denim look will ride the wave of the moment next fall, too.

The same oversized shirt and off-shoulder blouses come also in pinstripe motifs and in solid-colored options, which fearlessly combine the athleisure trend with more conventionally feminine pieces. That’s the case for the sleeveless jumpsuit, too, which perfectly encapsulates what the athleisure trend will look like this upcoming year.

Bomber jackets and a denim jumpsuit with a denim belt tied at the waist definitely are the collection’s key pieces, and surely radiate strong modern vibes. To top it all off, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville also gave their collection a much more conventional sporty look, using appealing bra tops and button-front shorts that surely add a bit of dazzle to the entire line-up.
