Debuting at New York Fashion Week, Victorinox launched their capsule collection Remade in Switzerland by UK fashion designer Christopher Ræburn. The small collection of just 8 pieces are constructed from re-appropriated Swiss military fabrics such as sleeping bags, parachutes, blankets, and wool coats—some as old as 60 years. Each item is a limited-edition of 100 pieces including Ræburn’s badass take on the classic Swiss army knife (pictured below). Kudos to the creative team behind the website and presentation, it’s beautifully executed!
