Rag & Bone RTW Spring 2012
Aggressive techno-surfer-babe about sums it up — that, along with the phrase “ridiculously cool.” Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have been on a roll for a while now, and this season’s take on festival clothing (Coachella, Lollapalooza, Glastonbury) is “classic Rag & Bone,” according to Neville. To that point, there were loads of great blazers, knits and pencil skirts, all shown in a mix of Pop colors and textured neutrals, though they were hardly basic. A navy tunic, for one, had a white zippered stripe up its back, while an earthy patchworked crochet skirt was topped with a clear plastic overlay.
The lineup was, as always, styled to an It-girl T which simply enhanced the fact that a crepe box coat can look great over a knit surfer poncho, as can a leather T-shirt with a flowing parachute skirt. There were no rules here — which allowed each piece to take center stage, all further illuminated by the floating ceiling made of 2,000 lightbulbs.
