Raeburn deployed an array of technical fabrics, including decommissioned parachute silk—preserved in its original candy-pink hue—originally used in humanitarian aid drops.

Toying further with the aviation theme, Raeburn paired fabric from deconstructed Russian flight suits with silk organza, along with images of maps and weather patterns, to create sugar-spun shift dresses, hooded parkas, and shorts that were anything but fussy.

“It was important to me that the Raeburn woman feels chic but comfortable wherever she goes,” he explained.
