• Christopher Raeburn • S/S14 • 'Mirage'

African tribal music mixed with pop was bleared at the Christopher Raeburn on Friday the 13th. For a supposed unlucky day the fashion world prospered and presented hour after hour, amazing collections. Christopher was inspired by the African desert this season which can so clearly be seen in his designs.
'Mirage' it was entitled. The collection despite being so dreamy wasn't a mirage but instead a fast paced stylish show. The utilitarian is a trend that was picked up at New York Fashion Week and has carried through to London. Christopher's chic and sharply tailored clothes all were worn with sophistication and ease by beautiful models. 

I'm always fascinated by the materials that the Royal College of Art MA graduate uses. I was fascinated last season seeing the clothes up close. The parka is his trademark piece and was used in this collection  in a matte like material. Look 9 was a nude baggy long sleeve dress with netted sleeves. 

The seasons favourite colour pink was used with white in a gorgeous print. Look 28 was a beautiful print of trees. Sounds uninteresting but fared perfectly.
London has delivered this season. It's been much better and more memorable than New York and the new faces are finally getting the more attention they deserve. Raeburn is one of them. He showed on presentation for the past few years but has finally hit the big stage and had a perfect collection for it.
