Christopher Ræburn AW17


The military trend is one of those that’s always been prevalent and Christopher Ræburn’s AW17 collection ticks that aesthetic, with a mixture of light grey, neon green and dark grey. The collection, which debuted at London Fashion Week Men’s AW17, also features a three-piece collaboration with Eastpak.

Inspired by US abstract artist Ellsworth Kelly’s ghost army, Ræburn continues his Remade, Reduced, Recycled ethos, repurposing materials from bomb disposal uniforms and blankets onto track pants, T-shirts and hoodies, complete with the REMADE logo.

Renown for his deconstruction and reconstruction, field jackets and bombers are strategically cut and sew to form contrast panels while at the same time, reiterating the military inspiration with considered detailing and thermal linings.

The juxtaposition of colours reflects a playful side and this cheekiness is further highlighted by models walking down the runway while carrying three-piece bags as part of the Eastpak collaboration as well as a chameleon worn on the back.

Ræburn also continues his partnership with Clarks on high top boots with utilitarian detailing, once again, successfully mixing urban aesthetic with the shoe brand’s classic simplicity and functionality.

There’s an obvious utilitarian element to this collection but as always, Ræburn manages to turn that aesthetic into relevant pieces that serve both function and style and keep ahead with innovation while championing sustainability.
