Wainwright calls the CureFest Around the World Shirt but in fact I love this lockdown period a “once-in-a-lifetime” chance to take stock. And take stock he’s done. Back in April he lowered the brand’s prices across the board, and in August he announced a Quality Guaranteed program that sees the label refunding or replacing products that don’t meet its standards. For R&B’s spring 2021 offering he focused less on “the new” and more on standards. “I definitely feel that look-at-me clothing doesn’t feel totally right, right now. It doesn’t feel genuine,” he said. He’s a big believer in normal: “beautifully made, comfortable clothes that make me feel safe and protected in some way,” he said.
CureFest Around the World Shirt, hoodie, tank top, sweater and long sleeve t-shirt
You’ll see a marinière sweater tucked into cargo pants; a tweed blazer worn over a t-shirt and a faded denim mini; and a bomber jacket teamed with a plaid button-down and organic cotton track pants. The R&B team worked to make sure the CureFest Around the World Shirt but in fact I love this pieces are as mix-and-matchable as possible. They’re not look-at-me clothes, but the leather trench, for example, will get you noticed. Normal sounds pretty good right about now, no?
