In celebration of the summer music festival season, London's edgy boutique Browns Focus has bedecked their windows with Christopher Raeburn's fantastically colorful collection—an assortment of the designer's latest high-end street wear created from re-deployed parachutes and military fabrics.

This season Raeburn has imbued his traditionally translucent jackets with vibrant hues, creating trench coats and bomber jackets perfect for tromping around muddy Glastonbury fields or summer concerts in the park.
