why i love the british

so after much laziness/copious amounts of first week of school scare-you-into-dropping-the-class homework/anxiety induced apartment cleaning, i have decided to get back on the blogging bandwagon.
as most of you know, i intern at rag & bone, and right now all of the pieces from the spring 2010 show are getting ready to be put out in stores. lucky little me, i get to see everything before it goes out to the public (and the fall stuff too (-; )! muahaha

anywho, the men's stuff is amazing...think chunky cashmere sweaters and mountain climbing-inspired jackets. i want everything for myself....
i got a first look at the women's stuff yesterday and i have to say i think i may have died and gone to preppy/sportswear heaven. i just wanted to share with you one of my favorite pieces from the collection that i saw up close and personal yesterday.

and here they are in the shorts version (love you freja):

i love them so much...they are super soft, almost like long-johns. for some reason i am really liking the whole drop crotch sweat pants thing. its a weird obsession that i can't explain. i have seen some other versions of these type of pants; what i love about these ones is the detailing - on the inner leg there are silk patches like ones found on riding breeches. there is also silk detailing on the top and tapering at the bottom, all the better for slouch-age. david and marcus do a great job of taking traditional, almost preppy, pieces and rethinking them in a modern and wearable way.
i believe they come out sometime next month...they will be mine!!
