There’s no shortage of websites and series dedicated to peeking inside the homes of creative people. But The Coveteur’s subjects for Who What Wear‘s fashion office series only get to show off their work space. What they do with a simple wooden desk or glass cubicle is consistenly inspiring, but today’s edition is also newsworthy.
Lauren Bucquet, the head designer of rag & bone’s shoes and accessories, let slip that she’s hard at work on the brand’s first collection of handbags. Bucquet’s the one responsible for rag & bone’s Newbury boot, the perfectly shaped leather or suede booties spotted on every model from here to Timbuktu. The designer, who was David Neville and Marcus Wainwright’s first intern when they launched five years ago, also tells WWW that the brand is about to “expand our footwear line in a very strong way.”
In the meantime, they’re continuing to open up stores as fast at other brands close them. The latest, which opened on Friday, is at 909 Madison Avenue.
