Last week at Chelsea’s DIA Center, New York-based haute-streetwear label Rag & Bone debuted its SS15 menswear line. Eschewing a traditional runway show, David Neville and Marcus Wainwright asked their friends (and wives) to pose for a portrait series shot by Andreas Laszlo Konrath. The subjects—mostly New Yorkers—include Carmelo Anthony, Brooklyn native and New York Knicks star forward; Honor Titus, lead singer of Brooklyn-based Cerebral Ballzy; Sean Cunningham, who owns Neville and Wainwright’s local bar, Brass Monkey; French model Camille Rowe; and Atoms for Peace’s Nigel Godrich. Though Rowe is one of the few foreigners among the bunch, she’s long been familiar with the brand. “I might have been 15 or 16 and I was at a department store in Paris looking through the clothes. I remember thinking it was a cool brand name because there’s a White Stripes song called ‘Rag and Bone,'” she says, adding that the portrait collection “feels very intimate, very New York … like home.”
