For the Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection, entitled ‘Blast’, Christopher Raeburn was inspired by research into traditional, original garments – and their associated fabric technology and development. Raeburn said of the collection “Each piece pays tribute to the objective of the original item – whether protection, camouflage, speed or warmth – and injects a new life and striking functionality through out complete redesign.”

The collection was divided into three distinct lines: ‘Remade’, ‘Lightweight’ and ‘British’.

  • REMADE: The Remade line, showcases what is at the heart of the Christopher Raeburn brand – the reconstruction of vintage military fabrics and garments sourced throughout Europe. Limited to just 50 pieces worldwide, each garment is of the highest quality and features luxury detailing. Highlights of the Remade line include a three-quarter-length fake fur lined Jacket in heavy Swedish wool from the 1940’s, and The New Duffel Coat constructed from grey Danish military trousers, featuring leather inserts from German naval jackets.
  • LIGHTWEIGHT: Bold and playful, the Lightweight line consists of the best-selling parachute range. The line includes a parka, windcheater, reversible hoodie and zipped poncho in new winter colours and prints. Both the menswear and womenswear hoodies  feature the ‘Blast’ print, from which the Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 collection takes its name.
  • BRITISH: A new addition to the Christopher Raeburn collection, the British line is made exclusively with the dead stock from a new British-made fabric every season. The British line launches with West Yorkshire’s Hainsworth Melton Wool, and solidifies Raeburn’s dedication to British crafrtmanship and production. The stars of the British line are a checked Parallel Parka in a tartan regimental wool and an Ice skating coat in the iconic Gurardsman’s red.

So without further ado, we present the Christopher Raeburn Autumn/Winter 2011-12 collection, Blast.
