COLLECTION: Rag & Bone SS16
Golden boys in Anna Wintour’s eyes, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville’s men’s and womenswear brand Rag & Bone attracted instant cult status after they launched in New York in 2002. When Kate Moss stepped out in it, then later became the face of it, things really exploded for the Brit designers. Yes, there’s the appeal; British heritage teamed with that hard-to-bottle New York aesthetic. Today, Rag & Bone has 26 stores worldwide and they’ve just added Dubai to that list with a 1,284-square-foot City Walk outlet. The focus is on women for now, with their SS16 collection mixing English tailoring with military refs; parachutes and pilots mainly, while silks and leathers create a tough-on-soft feminine feel. The bombers, the cargo pants and the jumpsuits highlight the blurring lines between men’s and women’s wear. Ladies, lock your wardrobes right up.
