Surplus style: New fashion collection reworks military gear

28.09.2009 Christopher Raeburn : Military : Reappropriated

London – A new clothing collection made from reappropriated military gear takes recycled fashion to new heights.

British designer Christopher Raeburn’s S/S 10 womenswear collection features see-through dresses, ponchos, parkas and mackintoshes laser-cut from military parachute fabric. His range of bags combines woven netting with original parachute fabric and cord to create a range of soft, functional accessories.

The collection is an altogether ingenious take on sustainable fashion.
