Rag & Bone's East Houston Street shop just unveiled its latest bit of Instagram bait—a new graffiti wall by street artist Jerkface. The mural, which shows a faceless Richie Rich waving around a wad of cash, really captures that shopping-at-Rag-&-Bone feeling: "Here, take all my money!"
Maybe Richie Rich's face was left blank so we, the Rag & Bone customers, can project our images onto him, forcing us to confront our spending habits. "Did I really just buy Newbury boots in three colors? Who do I think I am, Richie Rich?" But probably not—faceless cartoons are kind of Jerkface's thing.
