Helmut Lang’s NYFW collection featured his signature black and white sophistication — all with a postmodern twist. Lang has perfected the clothing-as-uniform aesthetic, producing garments that feel at once utilitarian and sexy. And we love them. Check out some of our favorite looks from his latest crop, as well as collections from Alexandre Herchcovitch, Charlotte Ronson, Yigal Azrouel, and Rag & Bone. Take a look, after the jump, and tell us your fave in the comments! Keep reading »
Time to give credit where credit is due: while the rest of New York City hid indoors during Blizzard Nemo, the fashion industry went forward with Fashion Week as planned. The tents have never seen so many pairs of Sorel boots! Let’s see what designers Christian Siriano, Mara Hoffman, Jason Wu, Jill Stuart, rag & bone, and Rebecca Minkoff sent down the runway for Fall 2013. Keep reading »
Kate Moss is — what? — like 45? And she’s smoked and drank and drugged her way through most of her life? And still, she looks so dreamy and perfect. It’s so annoying. Here she is in a new ad for Rag & Bone clothing, looking near perfect. She’s just proof positive that clean living will get you absolutely nowhere.
Remember how Miranda Kerr and her hot-as-hell baby daddy Orlando Bloom popped out a baby muffin, like, a mere 10 months ago? Well, now she had to go and show off her ridiculous (RIDICULOUS!) post-baby stomach in a series of “DIY” ads for Rag & Bone, shot by Bloom. The concept of a “DIY ad” is really too much for my poor brain to handle, but suffice it to say, Kerr looks like her body is literally allergic to babies. Like she outsourced the baby carrying to some other poor fool. It’s not fair that people can be this attractive, really.
If you’re going to hop on the romper bandwagon, then why not go all-out and invest in a classy all-around piece? A good choice would be this black Rag & Bone romper (LBR, anyone?) designed in collaboration with model Jessica Stam. While we love how this design could totally function as evening wear, we’re more into the fact that it’s body-flattering—a drawstring waist allows you to cinch and poof in all the right places.
While coming to work in a uniform certainly would make getting dressed in the morning easier, it might not make you look very cute. That is, unless your uniform was designed by someone you’ve actually heard of. Waitresses at Provocateur, a new club in New York City’s Hotel Gansevoort, will wear micro-mini leather sheath dresses created by Rag & Bone. And the hotel isn’t alone in getting fancy designer labels sewn inside. From the early days of commercial airlines, big names have had a hand in workday attire. [WWD via Racked]
