NYFW: Rag & Bone
By: Maddison Brown

Rag & Bone offered a no nonsense toughness for their RTW Fall 13 collection. They took to the runway with a certain edge, not uncommon for the iconic brand. Coats and jackets were oversized with large collars and wide hemlines. A lot of the pullover style outerwear were that 'boyfriend' fit that keeps coming back. Quilted leather and heavily knitted hounds-tooth print were a particular highlight, featured together and separate in the outfits. 

These combinations of textures accentuated the tough urban feel of the line. Texture was a large focal point in each outfit, offering many layers and combinations. They brought it all together making for an edgy women’s collection by daringly adding knee-high stockings to each outfit, most under texture-rich high-waisted skirts.  Black was the focal colour of the line with hard greys and deep blues along side it. Accent colours included deep eggplant paired with gold, as well as monochromatic pops of magenta and oranges These combined with the tough feel of textures and less form fitting outerwear made for a daring and brave feel for Fall 2013.
