Christopher Raeburn pays homage to the female explorer with a series of separates, dresses and coats that strikes a balance between softness and strength

Enter 'Sarawak'—Christopher Raeburn's Spring/Summer '16 collection that is inspired by the brave, intrepid, inquisitive and resourceful female explorer—an experimental venture that showcases a fresh elegance in utilitarianism.

Raeburn pits a delicate softness against strength perfectly, with loose silhouettes fastened midway and light, flowing fabrics that floated down the runway in wonderful feminine cuts.

Key accessories on the runway? Practical chunky sandals designed in collaboration with Clarks and waist bags that are actually chic, styled with jacquard detailing and an obi-style belt.
