City Pulse

By Alexandra Taylor

The setting could not have been more fitting for the Rag & Bone runway show Friday afternoon, with the industrial feel of Pier 57 contrasting the urban-luxe womenswear collection, focused on layering of rich textiles, mixing prints and patterns for the ultimate in chic, edgy winter-wear. Designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville know how to dress the modern, urban woman and have undoubtedly progressed in their attention to detail, creating a strong marketable collection. The strength of the collection was seen in the extensive outerwear pieces in varied textures and colors, complementing the otherwise monotone collection. The designers certainly are aware of what the Rag & Bone woman wants, and the Fall collection is sure to not disappoint.

Backstage was a family affair with Gucci Westman, wife of David Neville and lead Revlon makeup artist, rendering an edgy yet fresh faced look. “Patti Smith goes to India” was the theme of the beauty look. The skin was fashioned to look porcelain and luminous using skin correctors and luminizer. “The eyes are more rough and exaggerated for a street meets runway look,” emphasizing the contrast between the poverty and wealth seen on the designers’ trip to India. The eyes are finished using a crème gel and a kohl-based shadow to create the dramatic look, focusing on the sharpness of the eye with different textures.

Redken creative consultant Guido Palau stuck with the signature Rag & Bone style, “sexy, cool, easy and undone.” The edgy look was full of texture and had a bed head quality. “She is a traveler but still with a Rock & Roll vibe.” This came through using Redken’s Full Frame 07 Protective Volumizing Mousse for a dread-like touch. Once the hair was dry, Palau applied Redken Rough Paste 12 defining movement and overall feel.
