Timberland x Raeburn | Iconic designs are given a sustainable reimagining
Some of the brand’s best-loved pieces are given an edgy, streetwear-style makeover with sustainable fabrics in the ongoing collaboration with designer Christopher Raeburn.
In what might be the coolest-looking capsule for autumn and winter, Timberland’s best-loved pieces have been recreated using sustainable fabrics courtesy of UK designer Christopher Raeburn.
Highlights from the collection include the Brooklyn Fabric Mid Hiker for men, the Delphiville Fabric Mid Hiker for women, the Weatherbreaker Waterproof Jacket and the Fleece Backpack. But best of all? They’ve all been designed using organic and recycled materials, including the brand’s signature ReBOTL™ material.
Across the collection, geometric colour-blocking unites utilitarian hues of red, grey, black and olive in eye-catching designs that marry fashion and function. The signature Timberland x Ræburn ‘tape’ is cleverly used as drawstrings, zipper pulls, seam covers and in other strategic places to create bold accents.
When it came to the design process, Raeburn began with decommissioned military parachutes to recreate the original Timberland silhouettes. These one-of-a-kind pieces then served as inspiration for the FW19 Timberland x Ræburn collection, which uses organic and recycled materials throughout, including Timberland’s proprietary ReBOTL™ material. Helping to counter the abundance of plastic accumulating in landfills and oceans around the world, ReBOTL™ material contains at least 40% recycled plastic.
Timberland and Raeburn first partnered in 2018 with an apparel-only collection, before announcing a broader partnership with Raeburn to serve as the brand’s Global Creative Director later that year. According to Timberland, the partnership complements the brand’s “longstanding commitment to make products responsibly and steadily increase its use of recycled, organic and renewable materials over time.”
