There's a toughness in Marcus Neville and David Wainwright's Fall 2013 collection for Rag & Bone, and it might come from their abundant use of houndstooth with a little bite. The duo showed the pattern in some bold iterations: monochromatic on sweaters and skirts, or oversize and multicolored on other pieces of knitwear. Of course, the motorcycle chic matelassé pieces (a pair of gray trousers stuck out) helped with that feeling, as did the no-nonsense hair and makeup the models wore. Pops of bright color — an orange lapel here, a royal-blue ribbed collar there — were inspired by the uniforms Pan Am flight attendants wore in the '60s, and by blaze-colored gear ground crews use to stand out on the runway.
Rag & Bone sent out a Fall 2013 collection rife with graphic texture, bold tones, proportional mastery, and an assortment of accessories (hello, pilot clutch!) that we've already mentally assigned to our must-have list. It's no surprise that Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have — yet again — delivered a lineup that is all at once new (even when it's mod inspired), cool, and exactly what we want. Take a look inside.
For 2013, the girl at Rag & Bone was full of contradictions: retro and modern, feminine yet androgynous, and both soft and strong. Gucci Westman (for Revlon) created a graphic eyeliner shape that is simple to translate for the average woman. And the hair . . . let's just say it's ideal for the woman who loves to hit the snooze button.
The look: A chignon for bedheads, pseudo-'60s eyeliner, mannequin nails.
The inspiration: Edie Sedgwick and androgynous men.
Trends: Hair that is texturized and matte instead of sleek.

There's a subtle '60s feeling in Rag & Bone's Pre-Fall 2013 collection, which owes a lot to designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright thinking ahead to their Fall 2013 show. Wainwright says they're working on a "'60s, Pan-Am thing" to present in February. For Pre-Fall, the graphic pop of that decade gets shrunk to small-scale prints in black and white, and the A-line shape of a peach tweed skirt points to the bold simplicity of the era. The mock Chelsea collar attached to one sleeveless shirt by with a clever use of cord and grommets is a fresh take on another look from the period.
