Rag & Bone - Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Spring 2008
(NEW YORK) The design duo David Neville and Marcus Wainwright delivered a cool, crisp collection that was part adventurous Bond Girl, part safari-loving Lauren Hutton. The designers quoted English tailoring, American workwear, and espionage style as influences. “We were looking at late 1960’s, early 1970’s Sean Connery movies,” Neville said. “An era so cool, it seems contemporary. Hopefully people got it without translation.” Such references were apparent in the sporty khaki pantsuits, black swimwear, and safari shorts and jackets. Other pieces seemed more urban and office-appropriate, such as grey and black pantsuits or a white skirt suit. Some of the dresses were so neutral that they strayed too far away from the brand’s luxe yet hip image. When accessorized with safari hats, short vests and ties, the outfits had more flair. No wonder young, elegant and comfort-loving stars like Kate Bosworth and Amanda Peet are enthusiastic fans.
