rag & bone launches its first ad campaign for Spring/Summer 2013 featuring the one and only Kate Moss. The campaign was shot in England, photographed by Alasdair McLellan, and produced by Laird+Partners. Spring/Summer 2013 is a continuation of the minimalistic concept of creating unique, stripped back imagery. I WANT IT ALL!!
“We shot our first campaign on a deserted North London street so thought it would be an interesting contrast to follow up in a remote English village, which Kate happens to have an affinity for. It was also a fun play on our British heritage,” says Marcus Wainwright, Managing Partner.

Hot off the heels of last month’s highly successful Made in Kind debut, Anthropologie has announced that Tracy Reese will be among the latest batch of designers to be featured in the May installment of the online collaboration platform.
Available April 27, Reese’s seven-piece capsule will be made up of bright lace and photo-printed dresses, all with the same girlie, vintage vibe the designer is known for. Inspired by the gardens of the Frida Kahlo museum, the collection will be priced around $248 to $348 — much like Reese’s already-existing Frock and Plenty diffusion lines. Alongside Reese’s collection, Made in Kind’s May offering will also feature pieces from UK designer Charlotte Taylor, whose collection of op-art printed shifts and jumpsuits will be priced from $118 to $268, and Byron Lars, whose eight-piece capsule of folk-tinged dresses and tops — titled Beguile by Byron Lars — will be priced from $90 to $280.
Also on tap this time around are a range of pieces designed by a variety of India-based designers under the India Collections marquis, as well as new pieces from last month’s partners Karen Walker, Place National, and John Patrick for O by Organic. A sampling of all those — plus more.
