Founded in 2002, Rag & Bone had one very clear vision in mind: to make clothes that they and their friends would love to wear every day. With no formal fashion training, they set about learning how to make jeans. They believed that denim represented the history, authenticity and fundamentals of classic work wear that they would strive to reflect in their designs.

These principles soon became the keystones of the rag & bone philosophy, the definition of what clothing can and should be. With these principles in mind, rag & bone chose to center all of their manufacturing in U.S. factories that still sew clothes the same way they did 50 years ago.

3.1 Phillip Lim Summer 2010

Brand new 3.1 Phillip Lim pieces have just arrived and are absolutely gorgeous. The summer 2010 collection is soft, with vintage influences and a palate of pale blushes, muted taupes and deep navy. We could not be more excited about this collection, but then again, how could we not get excited when it comes to Phillip Lim?

Phillip Lim's raison d'etre is making beautiful clothes with added touches of madness, striving toward imperfection. The result is a creation of individual looks that are unexpected, unplanned, but completely relevant. Accordingly, Lim says, "3.1 is about clothes that refine instead of define. A refinement that's a bit classic in attitude, but imparts a sense of individual style, without looking of feeling forced. Confident, unidentifiable, chic and most of all effortless."

Tank Combo Column Dress with Laser-cutting Detail $450

Tuxedo Blazer with Draped Overlap $695-SIZE 8 REMAINING

Silk Muscle Tee $250

Asymmetrical Draped Short Sleeve Top $250- SOLD OUT

Broomstick Pleated Greecian Dress $595
