New York Fashion Week Fall-Winter 2011: At Rag & Bone, chalet chic meets the street

Rag & Bone's collection was a cheeky-fun mix of wild 'n' wooly 1970s ski prep. That translated into knit minidresses and motorcycle jackets with technical influences, such as color-blocking and zipper details, which should set cool girl hearts aflutter. (Speaking of, Jessica Stam and Alexa Chung were both front row.)

There were a lot of pieces to wear and love, including cozy, knee-high legwarmers to ward of the chill from short skirts and leather winter shorts; cardigans knit out of looped fringe, and sweater knit neckwarmers with shearling hoods.

Prep school tartans were a throughline too. A tartan wrap skirt edged in looped fringe was paired with a cropped varsity jacket, and tartan pants came with a pleated skirt attached at the front and back.

Despite the retro inspiration, the collection felt entirely fresh and new. Whatever that "it" factor is that young fashion designers have, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville have got it in spades.
