Presenting an athletically minimal collection, Rag & Bone combined ’90s classics like slip dresses and halter tops with a squared, geometric silhouette for spring. - [StyleSight]
Make no mistake: Rag & Bone's trademark tomboyish urbanity was on display here. And some of the looks, like the magnified varsity-style sweaters and slouched leather pants, came off as continuations of ideas explored in seasons past, rather than a wholesale departure. But Neville and Wainwright did seem to be aiming for something much crisper than we've seen before from them and, with their array of slipdresses, something much more diaphanously feminine. A soft and simple turquoise silk dress with a fluttery under layer of white expressed both the crispness and the femininity very nicely.
Neville and Wainwright were on less solid ground. They did knock one look out of the park—a fitted overall shown in black and in white. But it's no accident that the aspect of this collection that communicated most powerfully was its overarching nineties-ness: Those string-strapped crop tops and iridescent bias-cut dresses were kissing cousins of the clothes that girls used to rock in London back then, and the look has a fresh relevance now.
