Rag & Bone x Timberland Boot Company – Debut Collection Launch | Event Recap

By - October 28th, 2010

It is quite possible Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, the design duo of Rag & Bone, have caffeinated blood in their veins. How else can you explain the completely lack of exhaustion or jet lag after a whirlwind month of October? First, overseeing the opening of Rag & Bone Omotesando in Japan, the first international flagship store for the label, then to last evening, when the duo hosted the launch party for Rag & Bone x Timberland Boot Company at its Mercer Street Flagship in SoHo, New York. So, you really have to wonder, do these gentlemen ever sleep? But one thing without doubt, last evening’s debut was an overwhelming success. While carters passed hors d’oeuvres, Wainwright and Neville mingled amidst the gathered crowd that included a whole spectrum of fashion medias, fellow fashion labels, even fans from the unexpected like Ray Mate of Mighty Healthy and pro-skater Terry Kennedy. In showcasing the craftsmanship mantra of Timberland Boot Company, an company flew in one of its experienced boot makers to demonstrate how each pair is put together.  As for the collection, the Fall/Winter 2010 line is now for sale at Rag & Bone SoHo and Rag & Bone Mens in the West Village. The collaborative line’s 2nd release will come early next year, in time for Spring and Summer 2011. Of course, there is also the opening of the Upper West Side flagship…do they ever sleep?
