Rag & Bone
Spring-Summer 2014 – David Neville and Marcus Wainwrights’ athletically inspired, cool collection was filled with shift dresses on spaghetti straps, box pleat skirts, bib overalls and deep V-neck, cricket inspired sweaters.
The collection was embedded with the nineties transformation of cool but grubby aesthetic: something we know to day as ‘minimalism’. The transition arouse about twenty years ago when Calvin Klein and Helmut Lang polished the grunge era with their simplistic style.
So many designers have graced the catwalks with sport inspired garments yet Rag & Bone set themselves apart with their deft choice of colour palette. Steering clear of the usual sport inclined primary and neon colours (apart from fantastically vivid, orange lipstick): posing pastel shades of peach, pink, lilac and sky blue instantly injecting a feminine feel. Crisscrossing the catwalk in mirroring palettes were the models high platform sandals looking equally as comfy and effortless as the rest of the collection.
