When it comes to heavy jackets and trendy, practical outer wear, these British pioneers of fashion couldn't do it much better. Although, despite forever being in my top five favorite labels, I was slightly off put by the boys’ use of tartan this season. I’m unsure as to what it is that I don’t really like about tartan – possibly the memory of myself running around in a tartan pleated mini-skirt at age fourteen dreaming of being some kind of punk rock chick – or, the fact that I continue to have a love hate relationship with red clothing on my pale complexion. These personal issues with red tartan aside however, it would be wrong to say that they haven’t done tartan well. The use of tartan, red and royal blue pays homage to the boys' British roots in a way that is uniquely Rag and Bone. The use of such milky, light colours juxtaposed with bold red and blue hues in New York’s darkest season also challenges the traditional New Yorker’s ‘all black’ winter wardrobe that so many designer’s tend to favor. Some key pieces in the collection including the leather bomber jacket and thin, shaggy fur jackets offered a practical alternative to leather biker’s and coats while the duo’s use of heavy layering continued to remain one of the collections key themes. The dark eye makeup and messy, loosely braided hair also helped to keep each look effortless, despite the complexity of the layering. And although there was little attention paid of accessorizing, the thin golden chain necklaces proved enough to make all of the difference.
