Rag & Bone Fall 2014 Collection

Posted on February 09, 2014

Chic and warm. Those were the two words buzzing around our heads after this show. Chic, because Rag & Bone has a somewhat breezy, street-level style that’s always been appealing; warm, because it’s refreshing to see a fall collection that actually looks like the clothes a lot of people wear in the fall and winter. Whether it was thick sweaters over sleek high-waisted pants or slouchy boots paired with thermal leggings and wool skirts, the collection offered one real-world look after another, each one managing the trick of also looking fashion mag-ready. On the whole question of “Be Me or Do Me?”  – and isn’t that a question we should all be posing to the world every day? – this is one “Be me” after another.

    Old Navy chic.

  • There are some great shapes here. Nothing groundbreaking, but overall a great set of looks. And much could be translated to a wide size range.

  • YoungSally

    I know I can probably get the same thing at Woolrich or Bean, but I do like the black/white windowpane check pullover.

  • Love the Kathatrine Hepburn faces. Must learn how to fake like I have cheekbones…

  • Victor Beiramar Diniz

    some cray-cray crotches throughout, no?

    • ballerinawithagun

      That was the only thing that I could see, horribly cut crotches. Michael Kors would have been screaming!

  • BobStPaul

    Not impressed.

  • Pennymac

    These are really wearable looks, (minus the crazy crotches), but I find myself mostly fascinated by the footwear. Are those Rag and Bone as well?

    • MilaXX

      Yep, I like the footwear the most. The clothing is just okay.

    • Blair Sylvester

      Rag & Bone has shoes (I think their women’s booties are one of their most popular items ) so they most likely are

  • Coogi jumpers and desirable boots. I particularly love the charcoal kneelength laceup ones.

    • Gatto Nero

      I have my eye on those, too!
      Like the tall slouchy ones as well. And the tailored coat (a la Celine).

      • My problem with the slouchy ones is that once they got on my chubby calves they would no longer look slouchy.

        • formerlyAnon

          muscular, not chubby

          I have it on good authority (from a fitness professional who does not sugar coat) that if I got down to 12% bodyfat (which, of course, is never happening) my calves would still be disproportionate. I grant you rights in that diagnosis, sight unseen.

  • deelup

    Not in love with the Cosby sweater pieces, or the Jackson Pollock motif. Otherwise all of this looks so easy to wear, and I like that.

  • paintedfish

    lovelovelove. although the lace up fly makes the crotch look insane!

  • Toby Wollin

    Warm, chic, sporty, and..oh, did I already say, warm? very wearable, even for the ‘my office doesn’t dress up’ sort of workplace.

  • Anna

    Be me and be warm! Longing for the chunky sweater in the first photo and all the buffalo plaid.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      I really liked that one too. I liked all the chunky sweaters,even though they would make me look like I’m shaped like a polar bear. Really love the gray and black coat shown with the red boots.

      • Anna

        Oh totally, the chunky sweaters are not for people who eat solid foods. I love that look too!

  • muzan-e

    All the credit in the world for those boots. Huge-mouthed, chunky boots seem to be a thing on the runway this season (seriously, every second designer seems to have at least a few girls stomping those), and the vast majority of them have been cheap-looking yawns without much character at all. And did I mention cheap?

    I wouldn’t wear half of what he’s teamed to those skirts. But all the praise in the world for picking some really interesting looks.

  • quiltrx

    I like a lot of the footwear, especially the tie-up boots worn with the splattered pants. Coats and jackets are really nice, too.

  • Aidan B

    I’m a little underwhelmed. Most pieces are shapeless or oddly shaped. The shoes are better overall.

  • lamamu

    What a FUN collection. I could stand to dress like this for an entire fall of my life.

  • sleepycat

    Cosby sweaters.

    • Aurumgirl

      Actually, something about that cropped zip up black, white and grey sweater is making me think of Starsky and Hutch.

  • SierraDelta

    Preposterous foot coverings.

    • demidaemon

      I’m with you, which seems to be going against the grain today.

  • allcapsERINN

    I like the coats. Not feeling the rest.

  • demidaemon

    Skirts with long johns. That’s….new, to say the least. The shoes all look like they are going to fly off and knock someone out in the audience. Also, they are all quite ugly.

    • I remember long johns worn under skirts or shorts being a thing back in the nineties. For those days when the torn tights just felt too dressy, I suppose.

      • demidaemon

        Yeah, not sure I want that to come back. I sure as hell don’t remember it, which immediately qualifies it as a bad thing.

    • formerlyAnon

      The kind of girls who can wear *anything* look good in the skirts w/ long johns look, I think. And the rangier, taller, of the athletic types.

  • LaSylphide

    Sweaters are nice; otherwise, nothing special.

  • BuffaloBarbara

    Looks cozy. Are we all going to be turning our old high school pom-poms into purses and skirts this year, though? Because I don’t actually have any old high school pom-poms.

  • marlie

    Overall, this collection doesn’t really do it for me, although there are a couple of coats and jackets that I like. But I do appreciate that these are mostly fall/winter pieces, AND that there’s the appropriate corresponding styling.

  • Ah, the “stuff I found in my garage” collection. Oil-splattered dropcloths! Animal-blanket outerwear! Galoshes galore!

  • Danielle

    Rag is right.

  • formerlyAnon

    Nice. Mix of stuff I want badly and stuff I wouldn’t wear on a bet, even if I had the muscles I have now with the body fat I had in 1978.

    Like the shape of those slouchy boots.

  • Random Compliments

    While I want everything in my closet now, I don’t COVET anything. Meaning that I wouldn’t pay crazy prices for any of it. So as a wearable, sellable collection, hell yes. But it’s missing some fantasy, I think.

  • Debbie Barsotti

    I see a lot of polter-wang, as the fug girls would say.
