Christopher Raeburn for Save The Duck at Pitti Uomo 91
Having finished his stint as creative director of Swiss-based Victorinox, British designer Christopher Raeburn has put in a shift with an Italian brand called Save The Duck. Based in Milan, the company avoids the use of feathers, fur, leather and hides, choosing instead synthetic materials and fillings. The autumn-winter 17 collection was presented at Pitti Uomo in an intriguing tableau featuring six models stationary on plinths. Changing images from nature were projected on to them, producing a simple but hypnotic effect.
Selections from the collection were available for examination – I liked this camo jacket and detachable inner lining.
And Christopher Raeburn was on hand, being his usual charming self.
