Darren Kennedy

Accenting navy with orange is a clever and underused styling trick that is flattering for practically all skin tones - and it was one used to perfection by Christopher Raeburn in his AW18 show.

The theme of Raeburn's collection was 'maritime distress' and he offered up deconstructed and reconstructed takes on seafarer garments using his (environmentally friendly) signature of repurposed materials throughout. However, one of the most undeniably eye-catching trends on the Raeburn catwalk was his implementation of navy and orange. One standout look included an oversized navy puffer jacket, clashed with an orange backpack featuring criss-cross seatbelt-style straps.

TOP TIP

It’s easy to get in on the navy/orange action — think navy trousers and navy knitted sweater with a pop of orange in the form of earrings or a clutch bag.

ONE FOR THE BOYS
