Geek Peek: Rag & Bone

You may recall that Lane Crawford recently had a rag & bone event and we were lucky enough to score an interview with the designers David Neville and Marcus Wainwright. rag & bone was founded in 2002 due to the inability of the designers to find quality, wearable men’s clothing. With no formal training, David and Marcus set out to learn how to create the perfect pair of jeans and less than a decade later, the brand now offers men’s, women’s, footwear and accessories for the fashion devoted. Where to find the goodies? At the Geek’s temple of worship, Lane Crawford of course! Read on to see whose worst nightmare is to work in a bank and who wanted to be a professional golfer.
