As editors settled into the riser-style seating avec tipples to sip and popcorn to much, the pounding music for Rag & Bone began. Out walked a mostly monochromatic lineup of white and black garments, interspersed with some army-print garb and a scattering of florals. Going along with the army theme were a number of anorak type jackets, some cropped and layered over crisp white shirts, others draped longer and functioning as dresses. Movement in the collection came courtesy of swinging ties and those D-ring belts that have totally taken over the Spring runways. Purses were kept close to the body, like the pouches that were slung across the front of the body, landing mid-rib or satchels that bobbed along behind each look. As for shoes, those black leather mules with thick white soles were très chic and are bound to become a street style staple next year. The show’s militaristic undertone solidified at the finale, when the mods marched in rigid unison to give the crowd one last look.
