As Men’s Fashion Week gets into full swing, there’s one name in particular that has us forgetting the so called January blues and eagerly anticipating what AW14 has in store. Yes, Christopher Raeburn has made quite the name for himself over the last few years. Not just for the 31 year old fashion designer’s distinct utilitarian meets street wear aesthetic, but also because of his contribution towards sustainable style.
This season was no disappointment. The collection titled ‘Polaris’ included the same urban edge that’s synonymous with Raeburn’s work – the usual khakis and warm cream tones, the smokey greys and durable, effortless casual wear. But this show in particular seemed to sum up exactly what the British designer does so well. With a perfect balance of sport mixed with a vintage military vibe, there were quilted bombers with contrast sleeves that were made from recycled army parachutes, the colour block jogging pants and heavy mountain boots. All materials recycled as expected.
What particularly stood out was the mammoth arctic inspired off white shaggy coats produced fromSiberian Army sheepskin.
