Christopher Raeburn Takes Menswear Into The 21st Century
Christopher Raeburn really understands how to create wearable and accessible menswear with that certain twist that won’t push anyone out of their comfort zone. For SS14, he has once again worked his magic and done just that.
This season, Raeburn made clear references to political issues and conflicts in the Middle East, with desert camouflage prints, cargo jackets, coats, sturdy shoes and protective fabrics in beige, olive and grey. To give the collection that special something, he infused it with jackets and shorts in a pastel pink, see-through tops, a stylised camouflage reminiscent of tie-die prints and vibrant blue jackets and coats.
Raeburn created his collection as a response to current on-goings and the desire for attire that underlines its wearer’s masculinity but simultaneously breaks with ideals of what is traditionally considered masculine. As always, he took menswear into the 21st century without ignoring the majority of men who are rather reluctant to explore new territory in fashion.
