CONTRASTS & PERSPECTIVES
rag & bone celebrated its return to New York Fashion Week with a Spring Summer 2020 runway show that saw fashion, music, and technology collide while working in perfect harmony.
The collection is a journey through our brand tenets: American workwear, English inspired tailoring, military and sport. Intentionally swaying away from defining gender, the looks are a mash up of silhouettes using men’s and women’s collections across all models.
The result is an unexpected mix that is uniquely rag & bone — from bold tailoring and knitwear featuring banker stripes and regalia inspired detailing to lighter technical fabrications layered with angular monochrome graphics, from washed Japanese selvedge jeans, shorts, shirting, and gilets to track style striping and pops of safety orange. With function at the forefront, each look is an expression of individuality.
Drummers Joey Waronker and Mauro Refosco (Atoms for Peace) took center stage and set the tone with The Brooklyn Youth Chorus. Dancers choreographed by Damien Jalet were joined by a UR10 robot. Together, man and machine moved in sync while the robot captured point cloud video from its vantage point. Broadcast in real time on screens throughout the space, the robotic arm and dual-camera techniques provided the audience with a novel way to experience the show.
