CFDA names Rag & Bone Menswear Designer of the Year 2010
New York – June 8th – The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) named David Neville and Marcus Wainwright for Rag & Bone menswear designer of the year 2010. Rag & Bone is a label born out of the shared frustrations of Marcus Wainwright and David Neville not being able to buy the jeans they wanted to wear. They founded the company in 2002 with one very clear vision in mind: to make clothes that they and their friends would love to wear everyday. The men’s line launched in Spring 2004 in 4 stores in the US – with distribution increasing to over 120 stores for the men’s line and 160 stores for the women’s line worldwide. AW10 saw the first separate menswear runway show during NYFW with the conquest of Mount Everest in the 1920′s as the inspiration for the collection. The collection stayed true to Rag & Bone’s signature style, with a fusion of New York street-style and English military & formalwear as inspiration for explorers and mountaineers.
