Pilots, air planes, and all manor of aviation have been themes at rag & bone for a while now (designers Marcus Wainwright and David Neville even named the band's first handbag the "pilot bag").

The trope sticks around for fall 2013, inspiring a range of looks that mix 1960s Pam Am uniforms and military bombers. Vogue reports that the color palette was lifted from the airplane world, too, "fusing darkly somber, military service shades of black, gray, and olive" with a pop of an orange that originated from the lining of a MA1 flight jacket. "We wanted to start with something very clean, and then it quickly evolved from the minimal to much more modern military aviation," Wainright told WWD. Check it out after the jump.
