Some of our favourite looks currently in the store this season feature holes, mesh, and perforation. Seen on t-shirts, tanks, sweaters, shoes, belts, and bags, perforation is trending hard among designers this spring ! The airy, breathable look works well layered, and carries into summer nicely with tanks (like this Iro Paris one), easy flats (like these Dolce Vita white ones), or cute wedges (Iro Paris).
From top to bottom here we have a perforated tank and t-shirt (in White, Black, and Army) by Iro Paris, Iro wedges (black), Dolce Vita perforated flats (white), Rachel Comey perforated flats, the most perfect Jerome Dreyfuss leather perforated tote, a Rag & Bone lightweight raglan sweater. All in store now!
In the world of fashion, it’s that tricky time of year where the weather seesaws between frigid winter forecasts and the drenches of spring. In other words, this is what we call Newbury Boot season. This iconic Rag & Bone boot is weatherproof, wearable, chic, and most importantly, walkable. The kind of boot you can wear to work all day, and walk to drinks and dinner to at night- no matter what the weather!
Now in stock we have classic black and brown leather, perforated black leather, black and camel canvas, and charcoal, camel and grey suede. Come down and try a pair on to see what the fuss is all about!
