rag & bone has been steadily going downhill as a brand for me...
this looks all over the place, and "messy," as others have said...
the line works best when it's masculine with an edge and this looks like they're trying to hard to be cool...
it's possible that there are some great individual pieces under all that bad styling, guess we'll have to wait and see...

I love your interpretation :p
Overall, it's still has the preppy Rag & Bone element with this season's athleticism trend added. I'm pleased actually. Give me one of those blazers (Hanne's please!) and I'm good to go! Plus, I'm a sucker for bright raver colors. Perfection.

Imo, this collection has the best accessories and color palette of NYFW

I don't dislike it, I like several of the looks and in particular the hood flowy thingees and the overall athletic vibe, but I agree that it is unfocused and at times seemed like an assemblage of looks sent down a runway which I am not always so harsh about if it is the result of inexperience or enthusiasm, but here it comes off as if the budget for models and/or the soundtrack drove the number of looks and editing and coherence were afterthoughts.

this look

Yes, my first thought was: what on earth happened with the styling of this collection? It is awful!

But then, I'm not sure if that's is really the problem (while it may not have helped), because the pieces look at messy as the styling to me.

I don't really like the styling. It's too messy and R&B aren't usually like this.
I do like the jackes and some of the dresses.

As cool as the label name is, the collection is a complete 180 degrees. Not liking it all.

I hated the cluttered and confusing styling. It was difficult to focus on individual pieces when the clothes were all over the place. The collection was a strange hybrid of surfer chic/sportswear madness desperately trying to achieve casualty. What happened to Rag & Bone's simplicity?

As always when I first look at this it seems horrible, but the more I look at it the more I like it.

It looks disheveled and weird at first , but then 1 minute later it grows on you, then 30 minutes later your wowed by it. I am the first one to tear up collections like this,
but this is bloody good. It has some very Tom Ford elements but very well blended with a street aesthetic, to create something I have never seen EVER. To me this is still the best NYC show thus far.

I don't understand why everyone's hating on this collection! Personally, I think it's pretty good and I could see myself wearing many of the pieces. I don't know... if I were in charge then perhaps I would have styled some things differently but, oh well, it's still hot the way that it is! I really love the colours. I'm with disco54 on this one; this collection does grow on you. Well, it did for me anyway.

Some outfits seem to look great for me... but overall, I don't know. I have mixed feelings about this
