This season Moncler has chosen Christopher Raeburn to create their new ‘MonclerR’ menswear collection.
Young but extremely talented, the British designer had worked as a freelance pattern cutter before he established his own studio and, later on, launched his label by presenting a capsule collection of reversible garments in London, after which he has been immediately included in ‘100 New Designers’ by the fashion journalist Hywel Davies.
He highly regards to shapes and details so that his garments have become renowned for their refined design and for being scrupulously crafted.
Prized for being a pioneer in creating products that are recycled and ethically aware, Raeburn has also been fascinated by military aesthetic and the outdoors, which perfectly fuses with Moncler’s identity as well as its know-how in creating cold-weather outdoor clothes and has influenced their collaboration too.
The resulting twenty pieces signed by the Raeburn consist of coats, pants and accessories that mix the typical Moncler’s silhouette with the functionality of military fabrics and cutting-edge materials as technical wools and closed-knit cotton.
The colours vary from olive green and black on the exterior to the sky blue on the interior, which reveals Raeburn’s characteristic humorous touch as the iconic Duck, the symbol of the brand, printed onto the inside pockets of the jackets does too.
This innovative collection is on sale at 10 Corso Como.
