The First Unisex ‘Key to the Cure’ Tee – Designed by Rag & Bone

It’s that time of the year again – Key To The Cure (KTTC) is back! 2014 marks the 16th anniversary of this initiative. As of last year KTTC has helped to raise over $35 million dollars in support of the Entertainment Industry Foundation’s Women’s Cancer Research Fund. As you may or may not know, each year at Saks, we tap one of our favorite brands to design a tee for the cause, with 100% of the proceeds going directly to the fund. Last year we had a wonderful design from Emilio Pucci, with one from Carolina Herrera the year before. This year marks the first time we have a unisex tee and it was designed by none other than David Neville and Marcus Wainwright of Rag & Bone.

The Coveteur and the Art of Head-to-Toe Ralph Lauren Winter Whites

Fall has hit New York City, which means that you can finally reach into your tucked away cedar chest filled with all your favorite autumn coats and sweaters and start flexing some layering muscle. One person in particular, who is especially well versed in the art of winter styling, is the model and scribe behind the Impatient Foodie blog – Elettra Wiedemann.

Get to Know Int’l Woolmark Prize Winner Rahul Mishra

The award-winning designer opens up about his design ethos and what we can expect from his spring collection.

On the final day of Paris Fashion Week, and thus, the final day of Fashion Month, comes the long-awaited spring 2015 collection of Rahul Mishra, the triumphant winner of the 2013/14 International Woolmark Prize (IWP). Rahul is the first designer ever from outside of Europe to take home the prestigious award. He was crowned victorious over crowd favorite Joseph Altuzarra for his “graphic hand embroidery with Merino wool yarn on jackets, dresses and pants, with the graphic design stemming from an eight-petal lotus to morph into complex structures,” according to the designer’s profile on the IWP site.

Those complex structures aren’t mere decorative trifles. With Rahul Mishra, every stitch is part of an ongoing narrative. “I don’t tend to create pieces of fashion that are just garments,” Rahul stated over the phone from his home in New Delhi, where he’s putting the finishing touches on his spring collection. “Our intention is all about creating a story with every single outfit.” That’s not just fashion-talk. This story he refers to also knows no ending, as it continues to be elaborated upon with each passing season.

“I don’t like to have my collections be disjointed,” he stated. “Last season, where we ended, we will start this new collection, and from there we will take it to the next level. The next collection after this one will pick up after spring and so forth. We don’t want it to be disjointed. We want it to keep revolving.”

Naturally, we wanted to hear about what we could expect on the final day of Paris Fashion Week from the man himself. “The collection is called ‘The Ferryman’s Tale’. It’s an international journey in storytelling. There’s a very strong graphic sense of visuals in these garments, but at the same time these narratives are very open-ended. People do have the freedom to define the pieces the way they like,” he offered.

“We’ve also done some embroidery that I’ve done using a single thread,” he added. I had to ask him to repeat himself. A single thread, folks. “It’s a hand-stitched embroidery. And I’m introducing more color, which is what people want this season.”

So, with all eye on Rahul Mishra, does he feel the post-win pressure? “I feel pressure,” he admitted. “When you’ve competed against someone as amazing as Joseph Altuzarra, for sure people expect a lot. But I’m mainly very excited. The IWP was only six garments. I’ve left that project behind. This time I’m showcasing 35 looks, so it’s thrilling to play with such a large canvas. We just shot our look-book and I’m just really happy, all around.”
