Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone

Rag & Bone is a New York fashion label famous for their super-trendy jeans. A favourite with celebrities, the brand has now expanded from denim to offer an extensive collection of men’s and women’s clothing, footwear and accessories.

Rag & Bone Denim

When Marcus Wainwright and David Neville founded Rag & Bone in 2002, the first thing they did was learn how to make jeans. Their goal was to create designs that they would actually want to wear themselves. There are a variety of styles to choose from in the Rag & Bone denim collection including denim leggings and stiletto boot-cut styles for women and skinny and classic fit jeans for men.

The Collections

Rag & Bone’s popularity soared with their stylish, wearable denim and soon the label expanded to offer ready-to-wear collections. In February 2005 a full men’s line was launched, receiving much acclaim. A women’s collection followed in September of the same year. In 2007, Wainwright and Neville were recognized by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) with the award for emerging talent in men’s design. In 2010 the CFDA chose them as “Menswear Designers of the Year”.

Today Rag & Bone offers a full line of men’s and women’s apparel and accessories. Most of Rag & Bone’s clothing is produced in the US. The line aims to blend the classic and contemporary with an emphasis on quality; the designers use Waterbury Button, the oldest button manufacturer in the US, as one of their suppliers.

Dressing the Stars

Celebrities love Rag & Bone. It is not unusual to see trendsetting stars sporting a pair of Rag & Bone jeans, boots or other pieces from the collections. Just some of the A-listers spotted wearing Rag & Bone include Rihanna, Drew Barrymore, and Kim Kardashian.

Rag & Bone is known for their raw and refreshing ads and runway shows. Instead of a traditional photo shoot for their spring/summer 2011 campaign, the designers sent four models on vacation with cameras and asked them to take their own pictures of themselves wearing the designs.
