London Fashion Week: Christopher Raeburn's Digital Rainbow
As the rain pours down on this grey London day we can't think of anything better than the joyful rays of colour that Christopher Raeburn brought to London Fashion Week this season. After his recent success with Worn Again, Raeburn presented his SS10 collection, aptly named Digital Rainbow. This selection of men's and women's macs, ponchos and parkas, as well as hoodies and dresses, will brighten up anyone's rainy day. Here's the full spectrum...Patterns Without PrintingWith his trade mark re-appropriated military parachute fabric and detailed seams Christopher has spun a vibrant wheel of colour, experimenting with light, layers and laser cutting. The translucent white parachute fabric, seen throughout the collection, has been layered with brightly coloured panels which feature detailed circular patterns cut into to them, cleverly creating unique textile designs without printing.
Digital Rainbow AccessoriesAfter the success of designing the recently launched Worn Again and Virgin products Christopher has taken accessory design into his own collection. The amazing jellyfish shoulder bags, use the same layering and laser cutting techniques and come in the full spectrum of colours, so you can choose one to match your mac or get psychedelic with contrasting tones.
We're impressed by the way Christopher Raeburn demonstrates a totally distinctive style while continuing to experiment technically with each collection. And of course we love the fact that all his clothes are "proudly re-made in England". We look forward to a colourful Spring, come rain or shine.
