RAG & BONE RESORT 2021 COLLECTION
Marcus Wainwright creates timeless but aspirational pieces that have been twisted to wear for years to come for Rag & Bone's Cruise collection
June 29, 2020
The Rag & Bone Resort 2021 collection came down to comfort, quality, and a certain indispensability.
Wainwright’s instincts had been pushing him in this direction pre-coronavirus. He’d already learned to distrust trends and the tendency—not just at R&B, but industry-wide—to try to be all things to all shoppers. But the crisis accelerated the self-examination and winnowing processes.
The collection features an offering of not-quite basics, essentials with a long shelf life. Wainwright holds up as his standard-bearer a 70-year-old Savile Row–made blazer he inherited from his father. Making it to the year 2090 is a lot to ask of a garment in this fast-fashion era, but the tailoring in both the women’s and men’s offerings, is built s on traditional English haberdashery.
