NYFW: Rag & Bone Autumn/Winter 2011

Rag & Bone design duo David Neville and Marcus Wainwright sent models bounding down the runway, kitted out an almost deranged mix of ski-inspired designs mashed up with elements which looked purely futuristic, thrown together with a very regal looking red tartan and completed with splashes of burnt orange and cool blue - sounds like a mess, but did it look like one? Not in the slightest.

With thick bold lines running up and down complete outfits, and a sort of bubble-style ribbing placed on many of the leggings, sweaters and capes, it was a quirky mishmash of sci-fi costume meets folky princess, with a dash of punk thrown in. Neville and Wainwright used bountiful layering to create a cozy aesthetic that came together with seamless sporty/ski references notable in the knee-high socks, thermal style leggings, etc. 

For an Autumn/Winter collection, the colours used throughout were surprisingly bright, but sticking to a colour palette that daringly bounced warm shades off colder colours to great effect. It was a seamless and wearable collection (at least if you look at each piece layer by layer). Rag & Bone have put themselves on the map in New York, and now they are slowly taking over and gaining influence.
