Tweeds & Tartans With NYC Street Cred: Rag & Bone F/W 2011

The NYC-based British designers of Rag & Bone went back to their roots for a Duke of Windsor-inspired collection for Fall Winter 2011.  And though classic textiles like tweed where prominent one thing that wasn’t lacking was a truly bonafide NYC street credibility.  Dapper suits and coats mixed with eagle embroidered baseball jackets made for a modern take to what would otherwise be a much outdated look.  Wide trousers and cropped leather jackets with fur details added a dash of luxe. However, the stand out pieces hands down have to be the few kilts that snuck into the mix. The added pops of electric blue and mustard yellow really solidify the look and bring into modern day–definitely worthy of the streets of NYC.
