Christopher Raeburn x Fred Perry

The new blank canvas collection with Christopher Raeburn, who is a  true icon, not only in British fashion, but throughout British culture, Fred Perry has been the label of choice for generations of forward thinkers. Known for his heavy military inspiration in all of his designs, it comes without any surprise that the Fred Perry x Christopher Raeburn Blank Canvas line uses various camouflage patterns. Raeburn takes contemporary fashions obsession with military style to a new level, using cuts from original military surplus fabric to create details for new pieces, which also appropriate the distinctive styles of camouflage from these unique fabrics.

The Schneetarn East German camouflage also known as ‘snowy pines’ is an unusual two-colour winter camouflage developed by a mountain warfare school first trialled in the 60s. The German Raindrop camouflage is a strong graphic reference from the 60s and 70s, less effective as an actual camouflage because at close range the colours would blend together.

And the American Issue Desert camouflage was specifically designed as an interference pattern for use during the early 90s, one that would interrupt the pixelated images of first generation night vision services.

Lastly, the German Raindrop camouflage is a strong graphic reference from the 60s and 70s, less effective as an actual camouflage because at close range the colours would blend together. Raeburn has utilised surplus camouflage fabric to construct the chest pocket then worked the pattern into an all over garment print. The slim fit shirt features our signature twin tipping in the designer’s signature orange and dual branding embroidery on the chest. Every shirt comes packaged in a branded bag manufactured from original parachute material.
