Launched in 2008, the Christopher Raeburn brand came to life! Staunchly British, all Christopher Raeburn garments are proudly ‘Remade in England’ and produced in East London. Christopher Raeburn’s unique production process has been recognized with accolades including first place at London Fashion Week in AW09.
Christopher Raeburn’s AW13 Collection entitled ‘Optics’ takes inspiration from 1950’s military and Arctic exploration. Continuing his signature sourcing, designing and creating of fabrics, developing felted wool, Teflon-coating for rain resistance and a bespoke grain wool degrade: Raeburn’s AW13 Collection includes references of 50’s battle in the form of jackets and Russian Breton knitwear, roaring 20’s line on cloche baseball caps and dramatic collars. A parka-fuelled affair in various incarnations, including bomber style jackets, along with two-tone colours and texture giving the collection some variety. A subtle three-dimensional element took hold with pockets visibly extended from the main body continuing the Arctic explorer theme, with printed maps on to Blazer Jackets, Parkas and Tops.
