Christopher Raeburn for Victorinox
Since its debut in 2008, Christopher Raeburn’s sporty outerwear, meticulously crafted from dead-stock fabrics and military-issued materials, has attracted legions of fans—among them Swiss cutlery-plus brand Victorinox, which tapped the British designer (left) to create a capsule collection for fall. Called Remade in Switzerland, it consists of eight pieces fashioned from national military surplus: an Officer’s Parka, made from sleeping bag outers; a Recruit’s Cap, cut from wool jackets and cotton bedsheets; a Horseshoe Nail Swiss Army Knife, cast from smelted horseshoe nails and repackaged in the same paper box that once held them. By virtue of the materials used, each item comes in a limited edition of 100. “It’s just a few pieces, done perfectly,” Raeburn says (remadeinswitzerland.com).
