Setting the atmosphere with a looping soundtrack of a space shuttle countdown, guests took their seat in the BFC showspace for Christopher Ræburn’s terrestrial SS17 collection.

NYFW AW16: RAG & BONE

Rag & Bone’s AW16 womenswear collection, shown alongside their menswear in NYFW, brings to mind the notion of a hardline state, offering a glimpse of a world where enforced uniforms is the norm.
