New York: Rag&Bone’s latest collection was dedicated to the art of Parkour; a sport which incorporates free-running, jumping and gravity-defying climbing in large urban spaces. In other words, Rag&Bones clothes were designed to move. Thus, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright focused on flyweight materials; ultrafine nylon, perforated mesh and lightweight jerseys constructing hyper-functional silhouettes. Layers upon layers, intended for fast removal whenever one might need, straps and flaps attached to accessories intended to catch the breeze. Tapered silhouettes underlined the need for motion and added emphasis on ease of wear. The brands DNA remained true, abundant with utility references such as military pockets on outerwear paired with a clean, stripped back colour palette. This was Rag&Bone at their most agile. – Anna Ross
