Rag & Bone‘s collection for Spring 2011 didn’t gel together in the most coherent of ways… but it did pull out some completely unique and fresh-as-a-daisy takes on two fashion trends we thought we’d – almost – seen the back of: harnesses and exposed suspenders.

What made Rag & Bone’s interpretations so fresh was that their new takes on both lingerie as outerwear and bondage fashion were spun with a utilitarian, sporty feel. The ‘suspenders’ are indeed nude, tabbed shorts; the harnessed bras strapped tight with utility clip buckles.

Head-turning sporty looks aside, I was mourning a little the loss of Rag & Bone’s dandy elements. Is this a new direction the label intends to keep on with? We’ll be waiting to see.
