The Rag & Bone bros, Marcus Wainwright and David Neville told WWD that they plan to follow up debut handbag line and the successful shoe range with...more handbags and shoes. Wainwright explains:

"Footwear, bags and accessories are the next major focus. Footwear is a key component of our brand. It's not the biggest part of our business yet, but it is growing very fast."

Expect the shoes, bags, and accessories to have the typical Rag & Bone look (for the unintiated, refer to the classic and now ubiquitous Newbury boots for an idea). Or as Neville describes it:

"[Footwear] is very much an extension of how we approach apparel. The inspiration when we started the shoe line was for that classic English, rugged-yet-elegant aesthetic with everyday wear in mind, and the Newbury boot in particular really represents that ideal. Each season we cut it in new colors and fabric, and it continues to sell out."
The design duo mentioned the expansion include more free-standing shoe shops, but we'll have to wait until they say where to plan our roadtrips.
