Weird Science – The RÆBURN Lab

RÆBURN is a British fashion label with a unique and innovative approach to creating menswear, womenswear, and accessories collections. A graduate of London’s prestigious Royal College of Art, Christopher Raeburn became known for his re-appropriation of military fabrics and in particular for iconic outerwear created from decommissioned parachutes. The REMADE ethos still guides and influences every aspect of the RÆBURN design and development process; a RÆBURN product is defined by distinctive aesthetic, meticulous detail, considered functionality, and sustainable intelligence.

Christopher’s pioneering work had brought responsible design to a mainstream fashion audience and presents a new definition of luxury with integrity. The brand currently has stockists worldwide and has received an amazing array of media coverage nationally and internationally, reflecting an unusually balanced combination of high concept and commercial awareness.

RÆBURN is pleased to announce the official opening of it’s studio in Hackney as an experiential retail store. The opening marks the brand’s first permanent retail venture following successful tests towards the end of last year with a three month pop-up store at Coal Drops Yard.

The RÆBURN Lab offers an opportunity for visitors to browse and shop seasonal collections, archives pieces and Lab exclusives, whilst experiencing the craft first hand in the RÆMADE atelier.

The RÆBURN Lab is poignantly located in what used to be the Burberry archive where the likes of Shackleton’s exhibition material were stored and having commissioned a new bespoke fit-out allows for the store, archive and RÆMADE atelier in one open plan ever evolving space. It is also used as a platform to host a wide variety of workshops from open studio days for the local community to more advanced workshops where attendees are invited to design and make their own items using off-cuts from the atelier.
