Rags To Riches
Rag & Bone
Soon after the label’s 2002 launch, the name Rag & Bone quickly become synonymous with of-the-moment New York City style and sensibility, where downtown aesthetic met clean craftsmanship. Rarely, if ever, had labels before so cleverly melded classic tailoring, wearability and street edge, and it wasn’t long before designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville ascended to industry darling status, collecting awards like Menswear Designers of the Year from the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA).
Los Angeles fashionistas can now breathe a sigh of contentment as the City of Angels receives its very own flagship store, behind the only two other US cities outside of the brand’s hometown, Washington DC and Boston, and international stores in Tokyo, London and Seoul. West-coasters seeking that quintessential, NYC R&B look can now access the full and coveted range in a split-level, 9,000 sq ft Melrose Avenue store, that includes men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, as well as the bestselling shoe and boot line. But if you can’t possibly squeeze a trip down Melrose into your busy itinerary, fear not, Rag & Bone has one of the most comprehensive and efficient e-stores, conveniently offering global shipping. Dressing in rags has never been so chic.
