February the 10tth saw two legendry ethical brands launch an exquisitely designed collection in New York. The accidental hero of ethical fashion in London, Christopher Raeburn launched his new collaboration collection called 'Remade in Switzerland' with Swiss adventure brand giant Victorinox. The debut collection was presented with a feature film taken of his de- and re- construction process.

Raeburn is one of my favourite ethical designers who I first spotted at the London Fashion Week in September 2009. His iconic colour block and bright parkas, re-appropriated military jackets and funky animal prints have always broken the mould and caught the eye of many major stockists ranging from the Americas, Europe and Japan. This new capsule collection features eight carefully and meticulously crafted pieces made from surplus military blankets, repurposed surplus Swiss military jackets, tarpaulins, repurposed wool military coats and surplus Swiss military sleeping bags.
Each item in the collection is limited to just 100 pieces each, which will be sold through Victorinox boutiques as well as 25 boutiques worldwide starting in September. It also includes a specially designed Swiss knife whose hefty casing was created from smelter horseshoe nails.
The launch of this collection has already received immense coverage and praise from many leading magazines and fashion critics in the US. For more press coverage, pictures and information log on the official Christopher Raeburn Facebook Group, or website.
