Victorinox has been active in its pursuit of fashion with select capsule collections with designer Christopher Raeburn. For Spring/Summer 2013, the two parties unite on the “Protect” range which is presented via this short stop-motion video. The fashion element is evident through a colorful camo motif together with technical function. The five-piece collection made of recycled materials was meant to investigate the role clothing plays in the protection of the elements as well as apparel use for summer festivals. VIdeo below:

The British designer created the project to explore the role of clothing to protect one’s body from the elements as well as one’s responsibility to protect the environment. This season Raeburn selected five signature items from both the men’s and women’s Victorinox archive to curate a functional and flexible capsule wardrobe for summer festivals. The pieces are crafted from a recycled fabric that is printed with a contemporary twist on camouflage using the iconic cross and shield in chrome grey camo with fluorescent yellow highlights.
