Rag & Bone’s models are delightfully covered in layers. I love the artful layering and preppy sheer Britishness of the collection. It certainly suits my mood and the weather in Seattle. It is effortlessly cool and their make-up is described as “Confident, but in a cool, nonchalant way.” That is evident. It is hot grunge at its best. Marcus Wainwright and David Neville are already leading designers in the menswear typecast [especially with their pre-fall 2010 collection] and this just solidifies it. It is exactly what I can ask for with this weather. Fantastic.
I feel a bit bad for him that his fusion line had to show during a time of great tragedy when news broke about Alexander McQueen. Nonetheless, I love his layering and drapage. It’s like college chic and hint of sophistication with the red lip. This translates effortlessly into real life.
And so it begins. Again. I feel like I’ve spent most of my year in anticipation of February and September. That and I feel like I’ve grown pickier as I get older. I remarked last September that I liked less outfits with each progressive season (a product of the recession? I don’t know.) Not to mention this dreary cold weather has affected my perception; I’m leaning towards layers and layers in an effort to keep warm. In any case here are some of my picks so far.
