What makes fashion amazing is how it can reinvigorate and reinvent traditional, classic looks. It is this element of fashion that keeps its' very nature alive and viable to the modern male and female 'dandy'. The above looks are from Rag & Bone's a/w 09 collection, for the women's line there is a subtle androgynous feel to the looks, which compliments the formal, refined look of women from finishing schools i.e. image one. In the mens wear line, I like the use of rope as a necklace which cleverly ties up the whole look of the mixture of casual outerwear and formal wear. I have to also state that my main inspiration for this post was an interesting article in Vanity Fair about Miss Porter's School.
