Christopher Raeburn cleverly constructs high-end street wear from re-deployed parachutes and military fabrics. Sourced from uniforms of specific countries and vintages, Raeburn creates elegant pieces of clothing in stark contrast to the combat-ready materials from which they were made. We especially like the Parachute Jacket (pictured) for its breezy look.

Using mainly recycled materials, these ethically-correct garments are produced in England. The outerwear features fresh patterns influenced by bad weather conditions and survival techniques. An extreme attention to detail and quality have won Raeburn much praise and he was recently listed in the new book, "100 New Fashion Designers."
