SS16 SARAWAK Womenswear


On 22nd September we presented our Womenswear SS16 SARAWAK collection at London Fashion Week.

A spirit of adventure, freedom and the discovery of new horizons lie at the heart of the collection. Inspired by the jungle territory of Borneo and female explorers both real and imagined, SARAWAK considers a woman negotiating an unknown environment.

The utilitarian silhouettes, fabrics and elemental colour palette of the traditional adventurer are adapted through remade and reworked garments. A bold emphasis on dresses and skirts uncovers an undone, unconstrained look that both reconciles and challenges ideas of masculine and feminine - the essence of the Christopher Raeburn womenswear label.

Christopher Raeburn X Avery Dennison RBIS


Continuing on our for season-long collaboration at London Fashion week, we're pleased to once again work with Avery Dennison RBIS. For Spring/Summer 2016, the "SARAWAK" collection features graphic flock heat transfer embellishment on cotton drill and jersey pieces. The entire collection also incorporates high-definition woven labels made from recycled yarn - looking at every stage of sustainability. 

Christopher Raeburn X Knyttan


We're so pleased to team up with Knyttan to develop a collection of lightweight knitwear. Look out for the launch of our bespoke knitwear collaboration that echoes both the mottled pattern of the naturally hand-dyed silk and the collection's signature graphics.

CR for Clarks


We've collaborated with Clarks on a Borneo-inspired (apt to our SS16 theme) collection, where we have successfully evolved a design aesthetic that captures both the brands' essence - our signature urban utilitarian aesthetic and Clark's classic simplicity. With styles for both men and women, the collection features sandals with woven detailing and bold ankle straps. Created using recycled EVA and cork, the modern but vintage-esque shoes stick to our sustainability ethos.

We're pleased to debut the diverse and yet cohesive nature of the women's final range at our London Fashion Week show in exactly 12 days.

Breakthrough Designer Award, GQ Men of the Year 2015



"As well as a hugely talented designer, Christopher Raeburn has become something of a hero for environmentally-ethical living.''

Completely humbled and absolutely honoured to have been named Breakthrough Designer of the Year at the GQ Men of the Year award last evening. Such a pleasure to be named alongside some of the most exciting names at the moment - especially as a brand with a sustainable approach to fashion.   

We wouldn't be here if not for London Collections: Men in terms of how menswear is seen by the world today. So a giant thank you to Dylan Jones, Robert Johnston, Elgar Johnson and everyone at GQ for starting the initiative and for such an incredible evening. Naturally as well, so much gratitude towards the incredible CR team for all of their ongoing energy and of course the British Fashion Council as well as our PR Company - Exposure.

Roll on London Collections: Men AW16.

AW15 IMMERSE Merino Wool


Wool seems to be the word for our AW15 womenswear collection IMMERSE. We’re spoilt for choice this season with everything from Merino knitwear to luxurious wool denim playing a key role in the seasonal style. Over the last two years with the ongoing help and support of The Woolmark Company we’ve been able to put this most diverse of fibres to very good use, developing entirely new categories and sourcing amazing new fabric qualities. Once again we want to say a big thank you to The Woolmark Company for their ongoing support - it’s much appreciated.

Christopher Ræburn and Lavazza at London Fashion Week


We were really lucky this season to work with Lavazza to develop a version of our seasonal print to be used in key areas at London Fashion Week. When we arrived to set up for our show on Tuesday morning it was brilliant to see our seasonal mascot the shark adorning the Lavazza airstream in the courtyard at Somerset House. We want to say big thank you to the Lavazza team for providing everything from front row gifts to backstage baristas.

Christopher Ræburn X Wool and The Gang


We’re so pleased to be collaborating with Wool and The Gang this season to create an amazing array of knitted accessories. The Bruce Shark Mits as seen in our AW15 show earlier this week are available now to buy exclusively from Wool and The Gang. Alternatively if you’re feeling adventurous you could buy a knit kit and make them yourself. Thanks Wool & The Gang for helping to make IMMERSE one of our favourite womenswear collections to date and look out for snoods, beanies and belts coming later this year.

Christopher Ræburn X UGG Boots


Getting the right shoes to complement each seasonal collection is often a quintessential element in creating the overall look. Comfort, functionality, and of course style are all key elements of our offer, so working with UGGs this season made a lot of sense. The Rella shoe that featured in the AW15 show complemented the collection perfectly and we wanted to say a big thank you to UGG for their support in helping us to create what we feel is one of our strongest shows to date.
