you think it's trash, granny, but its not...

In searching for the perfect internship last summer, I stumbled upon's CFDA nominees, and thus discovering one of my new favorite lines - Rag & Bone. Designed by Marcus Wainwright and David Neville, this line combines classic lines and new silhouettes. One aspect i LOVE about their company and design philosophy is they are exclusively based in America and everyone they work with has been sewing for generations. They also believe in making a positive footprint and benefiting all involved through concientious practices. I'm not quite sure if that means they use eco-friendly fabrics or methods, but in my snooping around on the website I noticed they used lots of linens, wools, and cottons in their garments, so it seems to be a lot of natural fabrics. I'm obsessed with their masculine inspired looks with feminine touches such as subtle pockets, ribbons, and bows.
