rag & bone stage a campaign dance off

Chicago’s rising dance star Lil Buck joins legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov for the brand’s new film

To launch their AW15 menswear collection, NYC-based brand rag & bone hit up two of the world’s best dance talents – with two very different backgrounds. The resulting film depicts a dance-off between legendary ballerino Mikhail Baryshnikov and Chicago’s rising street dance star Lil Buck, who – along with a gang of models – are clad in the new collection. The Russian-born Baryshnikov, who made his name in the 60s and 70s (defecting from the USSR and later becoming principal dancer at the New York City Ballet) may be of a different generation to Lil Buck, who specialises in G-Walking, a style of street dance said to have originated in 80s America, but one thing’s for sure – the 67-year old is able to hold his own.
