Hot on the heels of the news that Preen is returning to London Fashion Week comes the announcement that Rag & Bone will also present on UK soil this September. David Neville and Marcus Wainwright are celebrating their first European flagship store in London by showing their Spring/Summer 2013 collection at their new Sloane Square location on September 16 after their annual catwalk show at New York Fashion Week on September 7. The brand has been based in New York for more than a decade with six stores there, so it marks a homecoming for the British CFDA-winning duo. David Neville said:
"We are thrilled to finally open a store in London. It’s exciting to present a collection for the first time in our hometown and for it to take place in our own store feels really special. Showing during LFW will further strengthen our presence in Europe and, of course, it’s lovely to be able to filter it directly to customers in the UK who have supported rag & bone since the beginning."
Chief Executive of the BFC Caroline Rush commented: "rag & bone’s presentation is a fantastic addition to the London Fashion Week schedule. It will be a great opportunity for our guests to view their full collection and celebrate the launch of their first UK store." Stores are also due to launch in Los Angeles and Seoul in September.
