The military trend has yet to go off duty, with bomber jackets all over London runways.
Quilted versions in black and olive headlined an array of solid outerwear options in Christopher Raeburn’s fall show. Although Mongolia was the stated theme, a zippered sleeve pocket with pen holders added pilot airs to peacoats and parkas in a patchwork of earth-toned wools that recalled the Asian country’s stepped landscape.
While familiar, Raeburn’s urban-explorer look — with each exit grounded in dark stovepipe jeans and variations on hiking boots — branched out further with prints. He splashed raindrop camouflage and a graphic print resembling Kinesio tape on anoraks and field jackets, many styled with matching backpacks.
Add Raeburn to the list of designers proposing oversize cardigans — his in a loose hand-knit — and, like most things he designs, resolutely masculine.
