Tenue de Nîmes have officially released their new 'Nouvelle de Nîmes' today. This issue of Nouvelle de Nîmes introduces New York fashion and denim brand Rag & Bone. Tenue de Nîmes was the first Dutch store representing the Rag & Bone brand. This publication celebrates the release of the latest High Summer collection.
For Summer 2013 Rag & Bone looked at the great outdoors, starting with the Dakar Rally, before exploring military safari and Bedouin culture. ‘I watched the Dakar Rally as a kid, which is how we got into motor sports’, explains Marcus Wainwright. ‘We were interested in the contrast between modern elements - like block colors, leather and technical modern fabrics - juxtaposed with these floaty white and striped pieces inspired by a Bedouin dress.’ ‘We wanted to do a hard and soft contrast and also really explore silhouettes this season’. Proportions range from cropped and body-hugging to oversized. Volume is also introduced in exaggerated details in pockets and sleeves.
The Rag & Bone Nouvelle de Nîmes will be exclusively available at the Tenue de Nîmes stores in Amsterdam. An extended version of this Nouvelle de Nîmes is available to read online.
