British designer Christopher Ræburn's label, lauched in 2008, utilizes decommissioned military uniforms and fabrics, so perhaps it’s not surprising that his methods caught the eye of Victorinox, creators of the Original Swiss Army Knife.
Ræburn has produced a range of 8 items, each made with fabrics sourced from the local military stores in Victorinox’s founding town, Ibach. A 100 hand-numbered pieces of each design were made including the Captain’s Coat (pictured above). which is constructed using re-appropriated wool coats dating back 60 years and lined with over-dyed surplus military cotton bed sheets.
