Rag & Bone at NYFW with Yimmy Yayo

Photos from the show that had the fashionistas fanning out.

It was sports luxe at Rag & Bone. Surf culture, parachutes and Burning Man are pretty disparate elements of inspiration but somehow it all came together in a collection which has got the fashionistas fanning out. We, too, knew something good was about to happen as soon as Fei Fei Sun opened the show to soundtrack curated by Thom Yorke.

Rag & Bone saw chic rehashes on comfort-wear classics. The terrible/terrific tracksuit pant was reborn into a light and breezy navy trouser complete with a thick fluorescent vertical stripe. Even the humble hoodie - usually reserved for in front of the TV or the running track - was assigned a sense of sartorial viability, rendered in leather. Bright blue ponchos were another (literal) highlight, along with asymmetrical skirts which took flight down the runway, perhaps explaining the parachute influence.

Sportswear touches did not stop there. We saw it in small details such as neon toggle attachments, piping on pockets, sweatband-style cuffs, sunglasses on straps, and more overtly through mesh-like knits and day-glo orange halter neck bikinis, which peeked through outer garments. Softer hues of lavender and powder blue were contrasted with canary yellow, turquoise, bright whites and of course that fluro tangerine, which was also prominent at Richard Chai. Geometric and gravel-likes prints also made an appearance while oversized clutches made a perfect accompaniment to the athletic aesthetic.
