Rag & Bone opened its first store in the West Village today. Designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville selected a cozy 1,600-square-foot space at 104 Christopher Street in a residential and decidedly gay area; a rainbow flag hangs proudly above Rag & Bone’s smartly styled window displays. But with the hustle and bustle of Bleecker Street a block away, the new outpost isn’t entirely removed from the Marc Jacobs and Magnolia foot traffic. When we popped in this afternoon, customers continually trickled in and out: Fashionistos perused the menswear, a mother with a stroller stopped in, and a few stylish downtown girls were lured inside after a long look at the window displays. The predictably rustic interior includes exposed-brick walls, artfully scattered furniture, and vintage trunks. And the clothes looked dreamy in it: A work-friendly charcoal pencil skirt ($295) hung just a few feet from a pair of leather leggings we are coveting but at $1,440 won’t be able to afford this season. Wardrobe staples like a double-breasted black blazer ($510), high-waisted tuck pants ($370), and a selection of buttery-soft cotton and cashmere tees and cardigans were more affordable. For men, a black shirt jacket ($445) pairs nicely with the charcoal-gray cigarette trouser ($315). And of course, a large selection of denim fills up the back wall. We dare say we’ll return ÔÇª after that holiday bonus rolls in.”
Oh you lucky New Yorkers! You get all the cool stores!
