London Fashion Week Men´s: Designer Christopher Ræburn unveiled his new FW17-18 collection featuring camouflage and deception from print, to shape to form. The collection titled ‘Cut’N Shut’ showcased utilitarian military style garments that utilise the title quite literally. Ræburn favours function in a time of consumerist consumption, filling the runway with thick appliquéd duffle coats, khaki anorak jackets, grey woollen tracksuits, camouflage padded bomber jackets and lose fitting cropped trousers, many inspired by his remade, reduce, recycle ethos as he deconstructs and up-cycles parachutes and bomb disposal uniforms.
A palette of typical camouflage shades such as khaki, brown, granites and black are brought to life with less natural shades. Fluorescent blue and yellow punctuated the looks – a highlight being a patchwork soft grey and neon yellow knitted jumper, hat and scarf.
