Barneys recently collaborated with Rag & Bone to create a summer line of men and women’s suits. The line is now being offered on the Barneys website as well as in select Barneys New York and CO-OP stores. Overall, the line looks a bit more conservative and less workwear oriented than Rag & Bone’s recent collections; however, pieces from the line would surely boost summer wardrobes in need of some solid, professional basics. The suits, offered in black or grey sharkskin, are youthfully tailored with narrow shoulders and lapels. The shirts are classic looking, with seams running down the back.
The line also includes 6 ties in dark, muted tones. My favorite is the black, woven, dotted tie, which could subtly spice up the plainness of the suits.
Rag & Bone shot some promotional materials for the line, starring Texan model Britt Maren and boyfriend Derek Orell, chef of the East Village restaurant The Fat Radish. Here are some behind the scenes shots of the photoshoot as well as one of the final shots from the Barneys website.
