Christopher Raeburn × Today Studios

15.05.2017

We're very excited to announce that we have teamed up with Hackney-based and local creative shared workspace Today Studios to design and develop a unique and limited edition sweatshirt for its members. True to the Remade, Reduced, Recycled ethos and philosophy, the sweatshirt is made from organic cotton and features a set of playful and innovative detachable monochrome woven patches made from recycled yarns and developed by long-term branding partner Avery Dennison.

The name Today came from a desire to celebrate living in the moment, it is a place where each day offers endless opportunities, and no two days are ever the same. To reflect this, the blended tape on the inside hem of the sweatshirt features a colour blend which represents the day the doors first opened, June 1st 2016.

Founded by David Johnston of award-winning design agency Accept & Proceed, Today Studios hosts an evolving programme of inspiring talks designed to inspire the creative community, which saw Christopher talk about all things design and sustainability with brother Graeme of Rapha towards the end of 2016. 

In the words of Today, “true progress comes from collaboration between creative disciplines”, and this partnership is a perfect example of two like-minded businesses coming together to design and make a unique product for the local creative community.

We had the pleasure of hosting another exiting workshop for Fashion Revolution Week, this time with the help of the Stitch Academy.

The initiative is a community component of the Hackney Walk project which is designed to deliver training and employment opportunities within the fashion industry and supports the wider generation of Hackney, home of our REMADE studio. It was great to get the local community involved and see so many attendees explore their creative side through our hands-on workshop.  Thanks again to everyone who got involved and watch this space for more updates from the studio.

REMADE Silk Map Collection

24.03.2017

Part of our REMADE initiatives, we’re very proud and excited to announce the return of our Silk Map collection! We have had a lot of interest and queries about our silk map collection ever since its release for Spring/Summer 2013. We finally managed to source more of these increasingly rare original escape and invasion maps after many years of searching…

Exclusive to our online shop or directly from our Remade Studio, East London, the collection features eight pieces created from original 1950’s Royal Air Force silk escape maps. The silk maps were originally given to RAF crewmen in WW2 and beyond into the Cold War period of the 1950s to help them find a route out of enemy territory. Rumour has it that Clayton Hutton, the man behind the escape maps, printed onto pure silk; the ideal material as silk doesn’t perish in water, it’s rustle free and could be hidden easily or even sewn into the linings of garments.

Each piece is unique depending on which part of the individual map we use making it a real piece of history. All pieces are lovingly crafted in our REMADE Studio in East London as a Made to Order service with a 1 to 2 weeks turn-around time. If you have any special requirements, we’ll happily welcome you to the REMADE Studio to discuss your needs in more detail. Shop the collection now or email us at orders@christopherraeburn.co.uk

Christopher Raeburn × Clarks SS17

10.03.2017

Today marks the launch of the much anticipated new SS17 footwear collection. In keeping with the seasonal space-inspired theme, we've worked closely with Clarks on a third collaboration to develop a collection of lightweight footwear for both men and women that interprets the advanced performance qualities and innovation of space-wear. This season’s theme ‘The Race For Space’ unveils another exciting dimension in footwear.

 The theme finds its inspiration in the early years of space exploration and the styles within correspond to the key four phases of the journey to and from space: ‘Launch’, ‘Capsule’, ‘Extra Vehicular Activity’ and finally, ‘Touchdown’. The idealistic stargazing and pioneering construction that accompanied this era has been translated into the production of this collection.

Each style has been meticulously crafted from its own unique last of hornbeam wood. A master craftsman draws on Clarks consummate design knowledge and technical proficiency to create pieces that perfectly embody the futuristic vision for the season. The new collection is available at Clarks.co.uk
