The Remade in Switzerland fashion line is a military-inspired clothing collaboration between Christopher Raeburn and Victorinox that heavily embraces a combat-oriented aesthetic in order to pay tribute to the very same stylistic sensibilities that were the inspiration behind the iconic Swiss Army knife.

Made from sustainably sourced and upcycled military surplus materials, the Remade in Switzerland line manages to appeal to consumers well beyond its inspirations, while also making a bold statement about sustainable fashion. The result is a rare but augustly dignified line of fashion that looks cool while also boasting a seriously diminished carbon footprint. Unfortunately, only 100 pieces of each product in the Remade in Switzerland line is being produced, but hopefully, its success will encourage its designers and other companies around the world to follow its principles.
