h100 Awards - Christopher Raeburn

 Friday, 31st August, 2018

With this year’s h100 Awards fast approaching, we thought we would give you the opportunity to get to know some of our nominees. 

Christopher Raeburn is a British fashion designer with a unique and innovative approach to creating menswear, womenswear, and accessories collections. A graduate of London’s prestigious Royal College of Art, Christopher became known for his re-appropriation of military fabrics and in particular for iconic outerwear created from de-commissioned parachutes. The ‘REMADE’ ethos still guides and influences every aspect of the Christopher Raeburn design and development process; a Christopher Raeburn product is defined by distinctive aesthetic, meticulous detail, considered functionality, and sustainable intelligence. 

 

What is a current and upcoming project you are working on?

We're preparing for the launch of our collaboration with cold-water surf brand Finisterre, due for release mid-September. The unique partnership represents a meeting of minds and a sharing of principles, drawing inspiration from the beauty and fragility of our oceans.

 “The inspiration for the collection was the sea and, specifically, immersion in the harshest of conditions. On a more personal level, it’s also about my trip down to Cornwall and to Finisterre HQ where I got to meet Tom Kay and embrace cold water surfing with the team. It really allowed me to ‘immerse’ myself in the world of Finisterre, and the unity was born” Christopher Raeburn
