The Rag & Bone Spring 2011 collection reinforces the easy, breezy theme we've seen at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week for menswear. It differs from the ubiquitous washed-out preppy fashion, however, in that these outfits have a distinct bohemian twist.
Oversized proportions and thick, textured fabrics give the Rag & Bone Spring 2011 collection a timeless feel, while pops of blue and burnt yellow add zing to the otherwise neutral palette.

Even though many have recovered financially from the recession, consumers still appreciate these vintage and grunge styles as they are unique for their simplistic and antique designs. Companies can incorporate these elements into their products to appeal to fashionable demographics.
