Rag & Bone Spring/Summer 2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Sometimes when absorbed with tailoring and designing you set yourself and your friends as your target audience, and other fashion conscious figures also get affected by your absorption and automatically replenish your clientele. This is the scheme that lays beneath the fashion brand Rag & Bone, which came to life through Marcus Wainwright’s and David Neville’s wish to wear self-tailored and self-designed pieces. Thereafter the pair was so much indulged by the process that decided to take things to another level by crafting tomboy pieces that culminated at the Rag & Bone spring/summer 2016 runway show in New York Fashion Week.

Actually, the designers have acted quite smartly by including a range of warm pieces in their spring line-up, like knitted staples, silk bomber jackets, parkas and anoraks that will become the exact clothes to wear while greeting the spring after the cold winter. The fact of furnishing us with warm and cozy pieces throughout the spring windy days was not actually the only thing to get us high. While heading to St. Ann’s Warehouse in Brooklyn where the runway was cast, the show-goers didn’t even guess that they would be treated to popcorn, tiny French fries and Mast Brothers chocolate before the show and that they would enjoy a soundtrack by Thom York, performed by Brooklyn Youth Choir during the show. Marcus Wainwright and David Neville succeeded in forwarding pleasant memories to the spectators and once more proving to everyone that the mixture of classic and sporty is definitely for self-confident and struggling girls.

From the very beginning of the show, the designers charm us with an effective color combination of black and yellow that has a very strong potential to become trendy this spring. The combination is implemented on the first model, wearing black elongated ribbed sweater designed with a large pocket paired with yellow knitted midi skirt that has tweed effect. This yellow tweed take is later found on a slip dress with a side slit or on a long-sleeved sweater with this collection’s signature pocket design, which is paired with a black leather skirt, keeping up the trendy black-yellow combination. The combination is also found on a couple of black sneakers with yellow strings. All-black or navy-blue attire options are also distinct with their culottes and cargo pants, as well as navy blazers, vests and trenches with signature black oversized pockets.

The alternating white theme with a range of pants, anoraks, parkas, vests and slip dresses has been undeniably designed to go perfectly with springtime morning sunrays. Warm colors continue to be in full swing with bright orange outfits that are really worth investing in. Special attention should be paid to slip dresses included in the collection, which are distinct with their crazy designs like black and white ones that are entirely covered with tiny oval cutouts or a white-black-grey slip dress that is again with cutouts and braid-like patters. A couple of slip dresses come to offer quite interesting color solutions – a black front is combined with an orange back or a black back is combined with a white front. Street-style lovers will appreciate high top sneakers and lace-up sandals. A closer look at the collection will help you spot unique hoop earrings worn by every single model, a design that was taken out from Wainwright’s memory when attending Notting Hill Carnival in London in the late ’90s.

Going through the Rag & Bone spring 2016 collection we find ourselves in a brave military atmosphere, which is in no way astonishing, as the designer was keeping in mind his military service back in the ‘90s while creating his new designs.
