christopher raeburn


There's a lot to like about Christopher Raeburn. I like that his surname sounds like the best and crunchiest variety of Apple. I also like that with his Spring 2012 collection he advocates both wearing plain grey school skirts and matching your socks with your vinyl rainwear. And just for good measure, all dedicated chameleons should place themselves against a matching rainbow appropriate backdrop, just as his models did. These anoraks are a prime example of a 'power by numbers' uniform, to be worn by packs rather than individuals. Earlier today I saw Francesca Burns and another of her Love Magazine collegues (can't remember who) strolling out of Somerset House in matching JW Anderson paisley trousers and I'd love to see Team Love each opting for a different coloured Christopher Raeburn anorak in a 'fashion tellybubby' sort of move.

If only he hadn't had his presentation so many bloody miles away I would have had a chance to see that badboys up close and personal. I don't know why, but I'm starting to get into "practical" clothing...
