Christopher Raeburn is pushing his second womenswear collection to the next level; up into the skies, in fact. “Building on the men’s spring 13 reference of ‘Deploy’, this collection references early female aviators,” says the designer.
Signature parkas remain but expanded accessories and ready-to-wear pieces will come in minimalist shapes in a neutral palette punched with deep red. “Fabric highlights this season include laminated Italian lace and a ripstop cotton – this is a feminine take on camouflage,” explains Raeburn. “As always we have carried out extensive fabric research and I find it really exciting to discover unique materials in the archive as well as developing new fabrics.”
