Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, the ingenious duo behind Rag & Bone, have created a playfully sharp wardrobe of mixed textures for their Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear Collection at this week's London Collections: Men biannual showcase. Staged on a backdrop created by United Visual Artists, the collection starts off in a subdued color palette of white, black, gray, dusty purple, and true blue, where the pieces are form-fitting and sophisticated in a manner that adheres to the brand’s minimalistic identity. Rather than drown their outfits in egregious prints, the designers have chosen to fill their collection with intricately patterned textiles that cleverly surprise and amuse. Stamped corduroy garments in white and black are paired alongside dark blue woven cargo pants and mesh, long-sleeved shirts. There is also a bit of floral-accented apparel in the collection that incorporates the classic Japanese cherry blossom design against a dusty purple canvas. Through the Spring/Summer 2014 Menswear Collection, Rag & Bone’s signature, understated edge is once again executed with a shrewd eye for functionality that men of style can fully appreciate.
