14.06.2016

On Sunday, the latest Christopher Ræburn collection, LAUNCH SS17, featuring both men's and women's designs, boldly sped down the runway. A fast-paced presentation with a bespoke soundtrack of haunting beats and vocals, the collection was inspired by pioneers of 20th century space travel and cult sci-fi movie THX 1138. LAUNCH SS17 builds on key CR themes of sustainability and exploration with outerwear constructed from deadstock Tyvek and Nomex, velcro strapping and packs, and modular detachable velcro patches. Other pieces too were adorned with an alphabet of velcro patches, as well as icon patches, motifs lifted from the 'Space Manifesto' montage (below). Included in this manifesto print is the Ethos emblem stating the Christopher Ræburn qualities of 'Reduced', 'Recycled', 'Remade'. This could be seen on sweatshirts and t-shirts on the catwalk. Alongside the clothing were new futuristic luggage pieces and the latest shoe collaboration with British brand Clarks, lightweight trainers and sandals, arguably the finest set yet.

MCMxCR at LC:M

14.06.2016

Saturday at London Collections: Men unveiled the latest Christopher Ræburn collaboration; a collection of clothing and luggage with luxury brand MCM. The show was an audio-visual lightning bolt: Onlookers (including techno-geek rapper will.I.am) were dazzled by the sound and vision courtesy of design studio Universal Everything's 3D projection mapping and music provided by London duo Raime. The (unisex) collection itself, defined by the idea of 'Made to Move', included reinterpretations of iconic MCM luggage pieces with modular holdalls, rucksacks and pouches. In terms of the clothing, distincitve fabrics and patterns featured with the Splinter Camo, Sonic Wave (inspired by soundwaves), and Quilted M material all in a modern palette of black, grey, blue, and yellow.


CR at London Collections: Men

10.06.2016

It’s another big weekend for the Christopher Ræburn team in London. Everyone from pattern cutters and machinists to stylists and photographers are working to make London Collections: Men 2016 one to remember. Christopher Ræburn is representing at two shows, first on Saturday at the Grand Connaught Rooms with MCM and then on Sunday the Christopher Ræburn SS17 men’s and women’s show at the BFC space on The Strand.

Creative Director, Christopher Ræburn, commented:

“There’s always a huge buzz around the studio during fashion weeks, and this weekend promises to show something a little different than previous years. The MCM x CR show on Saturday is lining up to be quite the spectacle. And then Sunday, showing our SS17 collection, will be slightly different from previous runway encounters. So it’s very exciting.”

MCM X Christopher Ræburn

23.05.2016

Arriving at London Collections Men in June, Christopher Ræburn and the celebrated leather-goods marque have created a unisex collection reworking MCM signature pieces into new patterns, with an emphasis on sustainability. 

“We collaborated to develop a collection with a modern, considered and sustainable approach. I’ve nothing but respect for MCM who are seeking to innovate, not only in creativity, but in our thinking around consumption of contemporary fashion.”Christopher Ræburn

Using MCM’s travel heritage and Ræburn’s progressive design ethos; form, function and longevity underpin this exciting new partnership. A number of pieces are constructed using recycled plastic bottles and bluesign®-approved fabrics (using the most sustainable manufacturing methods that minimise environmental impact).

Look forward to the official presentation on Saturday 11th June at London Collections Men.


Christopher Ræburn X Unmade awarded best Digital Coalition

19.05.2016

Last night Christopher Ræburn received the accolade for best Digital Coalition at the Fashion Futures Awards for our SS16 collaboration with Unmade. Run by Decoded Fashion and the BFC, the awards focus on innovations through technology within the fashion and retail industries. The ceremony was held at LSO St Luke’s yesterday evening and concluded the Decoded Fashion London Summit, bringing together key players in fashion, design, communications, retail and tech. The Christopher Ræburn X Unmade collaboration fused elements from Ræburn’s SS16 Borneo collection and Unmade’s unique manufacturing process of one-off luxury knitwear pieces. Using a ‘Map’ print from the SS16 Borneo collection, a ‘Ribbon’ pattern and a ‘Dye’ render by CR, the genius of Unmade’s technique is that each individual garment can be digitally tweaked by the customer. Every piece is made to order so not only is it totally unique, it is also a highly sustainable method of production.

Christopher RÆBURN nominated for the BFC/GQ Menswear Fund

17.05.2016

Established in September 2013, the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund, supported by Vertu, provides a British-based menswear designer with financial support and access to high-level business mentoring and professional services. The Fund supports fledgling UK businesses with international reach who have graduated through the existing British Fashion Council talent support schemes or are at a similar stage of development.

"We thought it was about time that the menswear industry had its own fund […] there are now more exciting menswear designers in Britain than ever before." – Dylan Jones OBE, Editor-in-Chief of GQ Magazine and Chair of London Collections: Men

Each year, a judging panel of industry experts selects a long list from the applicants to attend an interview after which up to eight businesses will be shortlisted, based on their contribution to the reputation of the British fashion industry creatively, commercial achievements to date and their three-year plan which should include infrastructure and employment opportunities to support growth. As an emerging and innovative brand in British menswear, Christopher RÆBURN has been nominated for the fund. With a brand new premises in the heart of Hackney, east London and some very exciting upcoming collaborations and projects, director Christopher Ræburn knows what a great opportunity this is.

“It’s an honour to be nominated and provides huge potential for us to continue moving forward as a progressive British brand. We want to educate people on how and why we make things the way we do, the thinking behind it, the values of our approach and how we work, to bring them directly into our creative world. We want to make a difference.”

The first round of presentations takes place on Wednesday 18th May. More updates on the project coming soon
