Rag & Bone Spring 2020 - Runway Review
September 8, 2019
Marcus Wainwright marked a return to the runway following a three-year absence with a Rag & Bone show that was high energy and high on the must-have quotient. There was something for everyone to satisfy the social media savvy: modern dancers, the Brooklyn Youth Chorus... even a robot shooting video that played on LED screens.
Themed "From the ground up," the clothing was all the cool, easy separates fans have come to love about the brand -- with touches of classic tailoring, workwear and military to boot. The rules were kept loose and the layers easy to wear; how else to explain a three-piece suit followed by a backless scarf dress worn over track pants (a recurring concept, in fact)? Not to mention skater-friendly wide-leg jeans juxtaposed against surfer chick micro-minis. Wainwright celebrated a sense of individualism with this collection, infusing the idea that a "Rag & Bone woman" is any woman she wants to be.
