Three cheers for the varsity girls at Rag & Bone: This collection perfectly walked the line between runway appeal and commercial prowess. Every look contained a key piece to purchase for Fall, from a tufted shearling coat to colour-blocked kilt-skirts. Staying chic while keeping warm is no easy feat but the boys of Rag & Bone know what girls want: layers of tartan wool, slim-cut parkas, and sportif striping. The killer combo of futuristic space-suit quilting and ’60s era plaids made for a strong “look to the past to look to the future” statement.
