My darling sister kept encouraging me to write about Rag & Bone as according to her, “They are the biggest thing in fashion right now – them and Lanvin.” As she is a globetrotter and a resident of the undeniably hip borough of Brooklyn, I trusted her words implicitly. She had been gifted a pair of Rag & Bone boots (from her equally darling boyfriend) and she was over the moon with delight. I also acquired a blouse from them this past weekend on consignment which will be posted on my soon-to-be designer resale website.
It is no mistake then that Rag & Bone is a New York based company. They formed in 2002 and instantly distinguished themselves by combining the designers’ British heritage with directional, modern design. Since then, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville’s brand has become synonymous with innately wearable clothing that melds classic tailoring and an undeniable New York aesthetic and cool.
And the great thing is that the price is right; you get great forever clothes at a mid-range price. You will pay several hundred dollars for a pair of shoes, but you will be able to cherish them for decades to come. This clothing was made to last.
“One can’t paint New York as it is, but rather as it is felt.”
