Apparently Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, co-founders of the cutting-edge clothing line Rag & Bone, are geniuses at both design and diplomacy. They have a knack for saying what all girls want to hear—“The woman is always right!” That’s what they told me when I met them at an event.
When I asked about this season’s top looks, Marcus and David described those as the ones that ladies they see walking down the street put together for themselves. When it comes to styling, they believe women shouldn’t be told what to wear. Instead, every woman should use her own creativity to explore clothing combinations.
Rag & Bone is designed so that nothing specifically GOES together, but EVERYTHING can go together. Pieces are compatible without being matchy. The designers love it when women pick one feminine piece and build around that. They told me not to be afraid of pairing feminine with rugged and even incorporating items from the men’s department.
As you can see, this event, like Rag & Bone, was not run-of-the-mill. There were hors d’oeuvres, drinks, live music and a fashion photo booth where party-goers could pose with their favorite looks.
