Rag & Bone Conceptual Brand Exhibition Opening

Rag & Bone exhibition in New York

Rag & Bone is debuting their Fall/Winter 2017 collection to the public on Friday, February 10th through Sunday, February 12th from 1-4pm.     The Exhibition was curated by Lou Stoppard and takes a closer look a the imagery, film, and music that have come to define the brand as a whole.     An alternative take on the traditional fashion show, the brand’s F/W 17 collection is showcased through a series of portraits taken by a long time collaborator Glen Luchford and Frank Lebon. Luchford shot on a massive 20×24 polaroid, one of the largest cameras in history, only eight in existence. He layered these polaroids into collages which included the brand’s very first employee through to Korean creative director, Irene Kim.           NEW YORK – FEB 9: RAG & BONE: Scenes from the 15th Anniversary Party during New York Fashion Week, on Thursday, Feb 9, 2017, in New York City.

You’d be darned to find a day of the year as prestigious as the first Monday of May. First held in 1948, the Met Gala, held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, was founded to encourage donations from New York’s high society and today the most recognisable faces from fashion, art, music and film gather to raise money for the Met’s Costume Institute and commemorate the opening of the museums latest exhibition. Founded by Eleanor Lambert, Anna Wintour has taken reign of the event since 1995, raising almost $175 million and enlisting the most prominent names to co-chair the events including the likes of Beyonce, Pharrell Williams, Marc Jacobs and Gisele Bundchen. The 2018 Met Gala, which also marks the 70th anniversary of the soiree will be co-chaired by Amal Clooney, Rihanna and Donatella Versace and sponsors include Apple, Condé Nast, Farfetch, H&M, Maison Valentino and Warner Bros.

The 80s were a fabulous time in fashion. Across the fashion capitals, structured shoulders, bodysuits and sequins were amongst some of the biggest and wildest trends commanding centre stage. While all of that was happening, somewhere, under the warm Californian sun, Shawn Stüssy was somewhere printing t shirts with the same signature that appeared on his surfboards. Probably little did he know that decades later his printed trademark signature on simple graphic tees would decades later play a part in streetwear becoming one of the most lucrative fashion business models of the 21st century.
