Runway: The Alma Mater of Contemporary RTW

I only feel that it is right to write a tribute piece on Rag and Bone.  My favorite designer this season by a landslide, I have yet to scope out one single piece in their collection that I even remotely dislike.  Masters at layering, I could stare at their Winter/Fall 10 runway collection all day if I had the time.  I decided that it is only best if my paychecks get deposited directly into their account so we can skip the middle man (me).  Since their fall collection came out in September, I have been dreaming about their Kemble cardigan.  Long and oversized, it is the coziest thing I have ever put on my body.  Another plus: it is ash grey and black, undeniably my favorite shades for fall, but also features a multi-colored band at the bottom for a pop of color.  Finally, about a month ago, I caved and bought it.  I then caved again and ordered the Grayling crewneck, which is the perfect sweater for emulating the fair isle/après ski trend.  The greatest thing about the brand is that they also make matching scarves, hats, gloves, and even the most stylish of leg warmers for many of their garments.  I have been eyeing their floppy wool fedora for weeks now, as well as their famous raw-edged borough scarf that is likely sent from the Gods, because no other scarf falls so perfectly.  My favorite dress from Rag and Bone right now is the Somerset Shirt Dress, which I wear with tights and motorcycle boots, but can be put together in countless ways.  The silky fabric makes it dressy but the plaid detailing balances it out to make it the kind of item that one can wear both casually and dressed up.  My favorite jacket that I won’t be affording any time in the near future would have to be the Finch Shearling Bomber Jacket.  At a mere $1,875 dollars, it is the most versatile shade of burgundy in a zip up motorcycle style and coated with shearling and suede.  Yum!

Rag and Bone is available at many retailers, but my best bets have been saksshopbop, and rag & bone themselves.
