NEW YORK — That 8-ball jacket worn by other, immeasurably cooler, invariably older people, guys and girls alike, throughout the early 1990s is likely to still linger in the distant memories of readers of a certain age. That color paneled varsity jacket is legendary, if not a touch notorious. In the the hands of Marcus Wainwright, flying solo at the helm of Rag & Bone for the first season following the departure of his longtime design partner David Neville, that jacket was given a new lease on life as it was coolly banked into the corner pocket. The collection of course was not all Yo! MTV Raps throwbacks, however, there were plenty of other motocross inspired looks that were tempered by the sort of elegance shown by a delicate black ankle-length viscose dress that made it to the runway. On the evening seven models at Next including Binx, Lina Hoss, Lineisy Montero, Grace Hartzel, Wangy, Miranda Nyström, and Selena Forrest featured in the runway show. In the darkly lit backstage at Skylight Clarkson North, the crowd of models, dressers, hair and makeup personnel, and others, assembled on the exposed concrete floors made the occasion feel like a warehouse party, which is an association that ought to resonate famously with this endearing label.
