The Rugged Dandy–Approaching the fall/winter 2012 season, Rag & Bone designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright took hold of the dandy and roughed him up with a wild eye for the unkempt outdoors. Infiltrated by woodsy sentiments, fine tailoring took on a utilitarian purpose, juxtaposed with details of the modern age. Lasered fabrications and satin linings joined carefully placed leather inclusions for a notion of today’s designs. Meanwhile, relaxed trousers as well as heavy coats of wool tied into a London romanticism that is indifferent to time. A subtle twist of menswear fundamentals, the collection as a whole fueled a space for classic ideas with a hint of experimental fodder aimed at the season.
