Christopher Raeburn is a serious fabric nerd who revels in scoping out, developing and appropriating new fabrics to add to his repertoire. Among his newest finds was a double-weave mesh from an Italian mill that he incorporated into the sleeves of sweatshirts. He also worked a four-way stretch fabric — water resistant and breathable — into vests and bombers that were printed with satellite imagery of the desert. His rugged, outdoorsy theme stretched to tailored shirts in muted salmon, camouflage-print parkas and gabardine macs made from original Fifties British military bivouac bags. Every season Raeburn has a different animal mascot that he incorporates subtly into his print, and this time around it’s the desert lizard.
