And that’s why Rag & Bone’s Fall (-ish, more on this in a moment) men’s lineup, which was shown alongside womenswear tonight, was one such occasion.
Looking back at August Sander’s photos from pre-Nazi Germany—Instagrams from eternity—is poignant and urgent: His subjects appear as right-here, right-now human as you or I, just stranded in a different, turbulent age.
