Nestled deep within the chic, white corridors of Somerset House, Christopher Raeburn chose to showcase his latest womenswear collection in a more traditional way this season. As jumbo jet sound effects filled the tranquil room, spectators filed in, greeted occasionally by the soft "twit-woos" of owls...if you haven't guessed already, Christopher looked to 'flight' for his spring/summer inspiration!

A futuristic pallet of white, black and grey, the collection saw an overall sports luxe feel with structured silhouettes amplified by impressive attention to detail and unique fabric choices. These included laminated lace parkas, which were not only very clever but also very beautiful, and original silk 1950's flight escape maps transformed into dresses! Adorable little owl, dog and hare rucksacks also made an appearance, slung gracefully over the arms of models...both one of these and a laminated lace parka are on my wishlist!         

I've actually been interning with the PR agency who deal with Christopher Raeburn's press for the last six weeks, and so not only did I get to attend the SS13 show wearing a Christopher Raeburn jacket, but I also saw the model casting take place at our offices! Yesterday was my last day...I have some good news...I've been offered a years paid internship with Boden as a creative assistant! It sounds like my dream job and I am very, very excited...I start on Monday so I will let you know how the week goes and what my new job entails!
