Since launching their line rag & bone in 2002, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have opened three stores in New York. Their latest is a spacious shop on Mercer Street in Soho. The long, airy space has high ceilings and sleek, industrial details, like exposed beams and old ladders. The label, whose name references an old British term for junk collectors, is consistently edgy, but with a tailored, timeless look. We especially love the dark-leather bomber jackets, the slim, colorful rayon dresses, and the warm men’s puffer jacket that conveniently turns into a vest. Both men’s and women’s items, as well as accessories and traditional shaving supplies, are carried at rag & bone’s newest outpost, with a comfortable sitting area in the back, ideal for trying on the label’s chic shoes. We visited the store in the month following its opening and picked out our favorite items.
