“Raeburn, Recycled, Remade, Reduced,” read a new logo during Christopher Raeburn‘s 10th-anniversary show. For about a decade or so, the London-based designer has been one of the most prominent and authentic pioneers of the sustainable movement, which always worked well with his more industrial military aesthetics. For Fall 2019 Menswear, upcycling and waste management were the names of the game. Most of the well-made and complicatedly constructed army-like garb that went down the runway were made out of old and recycled materials. A couple of old wool blankets made for strong and nifty parkas that were reversible. Scraps of different nylon were patchworked together to become flattering anoraks and jackets. As the new creative director of Timbaland, the footwear was also made up of organically-made boots that were fitting with the Raeburn’s strenuous attitude. Come fall, both brands are bound to achieve a surge in sales with this fantastically urban yet eco-friendly line!
