Limited Capsule Collaboration Alert! TIMBERLAND BOOT COMPANY x RAG & BONE

What happens when authentic bootmaker meets English tailors?
That was the starting point for the limited capsule collaboration by Timberland Boot Company, the new premium, heritage brand from Timberland, and Rag & Bone, the very cool and very successful New York label Rag & Bone (by British gents Marcus Wainwright and David Neville).

The resulting collection pays homage to a classic work wear aesthetic, underpinned by considered minimalist construction and meticulous stitching. Shoes are purposefully distressed to look worn-in and storied - like how a pair of great vintage work boots should look. Slimmer soles and silhouettes also ensure that these gorgeous boots remain relevant for style-conscious urbanites.
(RRP starts at US$300)


While it’s true that “rag and bone” is a British phrase for unwanted odds and ends, fashion label Rag & Bone is really filled with things we totally want. The label started in 2002 as a denim brand, expanding into a full men’s wear collection in 2004, and a women’s wear collection a year later -- all known for their simple-but-not-too-simple wearability and quality.
These days, with an endless list of BFFs -the likes of Alexa Chung, Erin Wasson, Jon Hamm- always sitting front row at their runway shows, it’s clear that Rag & Bone has pretty much achieved the very definition of downtown cool.
