Timberland & Christopher Raeburn: an army of style
Conscious military looks for FW19
Last night at London Fashion Week Men’s, fashion designer Christopher Raeburn, whose label of the same name is synonymous with responsible, intelligent design, unveiled his FW19 collaboration with Timberland. The collection, which spans across footwear, apparel and accessories, builds upon the Timberland x Christopher RÆBURN apparel capsule that debuted in FW18, and marks the first since Timberland announced a broader partnership with Raeburn to serve as the brand’s Global Creative Director.
In advance of the show, Raeburn developed several exclusive, concept-driven apparel pieces in his RÆBURN Lab space in London. In line with his REMADE philosophy, Raeburn utilized decommissioned military parachutes used by air force pilots to re-create original Timberland silhouettes, including the brand’s iconic Weatherbreaker Jacket.
In October, a full assortment of Timberland x Christopher RÆBURN footwear, apparel and bags, will launch in select, premium retail locations around the world. In line with both brands’ commitment to responsible fashion, the entire range will incorporate eco-conscious materials including organic cotton and recycled PET (including Timberland’s proprietary ReBotl™ material), to help reduce impact on the environment.
