Rag & Bone F2010RTW

David Neville and Marcus Wainwright made a statement collection for fall 2010. This was the first time the duo presented their collection seperate from their menswear line. It was by far their strongest collection yet, since 2005. They explained their inspiration from "Crazy English guys who climbed Mount Everest in the twenties in tweed." The line was dense and thick and full of mixed tweeds, chunky knitwear, wool knee socks, kilts, plaids, and the accessory choice of a bolo tie. The style of layering cardigans over blazers, oversized scarves tangled around the neck and peek a boo knee caps in nearly every look. These two are peaking, the line was a statement at fashion week.

Whatch ya want want want

The new Balenciaga Chain Saddle Bag, is a must this summer. From the chain, military inspired detail and functional design, this bag is it! I passed through Barneys New York today and wow, it was spotted the second I walked through the doors. It's a classic shape made from soft butter leather, it has a flap top and buckle closure. The chain handle made from blue and silver chain link gives it the identifiable edge of all Balenciaga pieces. Its a must!
