Remade in Switzerland

Victorinox has a new brand called Remade in Switzerland. The designs are by the young designer Christopher Raeburn from England. He is known for his pioneering work creating ethically aware and innovative men’s and womenswear collections from re-appropriated military fabrics. An MA graduate of the prestigious Royal College of Art in 2006, Ræburn launched in 2008 his label utilising decommissioned military stocks of uniform and parachute fabrics to create functional, intelligent, and meticulously crafted garments.

  1. The Victorinox people must be pretty happy (or, impressed) with your traffic, Tina : )

    “Bandwidth Limit Exceeded

    The server is temporarily unable to service your request due to the site owner reaching his/her bandwidth limit. Please try again later.

  2. Bandwidth exceeded may have something to do with traffic via @greatdismal himself, William Gibson sending people this way! ;)

  3. The site is as beautiful as the clothing.

  4. love the look of the site.

    But, if i click on one of the articles of clothing, it’ll slide over to the image, and you get the secondary menu for that one. I don’t seem to see a back button, to just repopulate to the clothing list. Instead I have to click back on the logo or back on AW11, and it reloads the site instead of the seamless sliding and menu populating. Seems odd.

    Also. While trying to find a way back “home” I found a way to break the site. Click on one of the articles of clothing, lets say the officer’s parka. It slides to the parka. Now click the Officer’s parka again at the top. It will slide by again and then to white. It is now stuck with no image. Unless you click in the space to navigate to the “next” one with your mouse, then it will fix itself.

  5. Boo no prices, purchase information or options.

  6. Like the nature of these garments.

    @boo: Victorinox Blog ( writes “for fall-winter 2011…” and Juncture ( adds: “…because of the limited nature of the project, only 100 units per design will be available this September”

  7. pretty idea! but strellson did this a few years before…

  8. and nice website too!

  9. wow, the movies are really great and woohoo, strellson sells clothes but do they present them so… awesome?

  10. i mean, that strellson produced some clothes with military fabrics years ago in switzerland.. that’s not really innovative… but hot stuff anyway. the website is fantastic.

  11. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your blog?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the
    way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
