the 'rag & bone' look


The 'rag and bone man' was an itinerant dealer in old 
clothes and cheap secondhand items, roaming last century's
European cities by horse and cart to collect wood, pieces 
of furniture, scrap metal and anything else he 
could sell or reuse: a recycling pioneer indeed.


As an homage to this bygone character New York fashion 
designers (in truth with no formal fashion training) 
David Neville and Marcus Wainwright derived their 
own label's name founded back in 2002.
Rag & Bone launched first men's line in spring 2004 
expanding to offer a full women's collection by fall 2005.
Guided by a strong British tailoring influence the lifestyle 
brand produces classic yet modern sportswear 
as well accessories and footwear. 


Next year's spring RTW collection shows simple, wearable 
looks with tailored pantsuits (the brand's specialty)
harness bras, black nude slipdresses, white broderie 
anglaise trousers as well edgy heeled sandals. 
A splash of color comes with sheer tunics
and skirts in turquoise blue toned prints to brighten 
the rigorous black & white collection.
