When Marcus Wainwright and David Neville's Resort 2013 collection reaches stores in November, Rag & Bone customers will be treated to a collection of cable-knit sweaters, floral and sequin suiting, and some very smart outerwear — wool overcoats, leather jackets, and an olive parka included. There are feminine dresses and skirts, too, and though they might be toughened up with leather elements, their inspiration comes from Victorian petticoats. "It feels odd for me to be saying this," Wainwright said. "But all those lace and gauzy layers are really cool."

For Resort 2013, Peter Dundas took inspiration from safari dressing and army surplus stores, resulting in a collection with an easy-to-wear undercurrent. While he didn't step away from the caftans and sexy, embellished evening gowns he's known for, there was a new focus on options for day as well. Those included embroidered olive cargo pants paired with a bright sky blue double-breasted blazer and shirtdresses cinched at the waist with wide grosgrain belts. Perhaps this newfound dedication to day-to-night dressing has something to do with the 11 new stores the company plans to open soon: Dundas will cut the ribbon at the first New York flagship in September.
