WIZARD WORKS X RÆBURN
collaboration / October 13, 2022
What started as a peeler suit became a collection of highly limited Wizard Works × RÆBURN bags; a trio of cycle-ready styles designed to fit a VanMoof, but with all cyclists in mind.
A peeler suit, a coverall garment used by civil responders and the police, is built from an exceptionally strong three-layer fabric. A compact-weave outer layer is backed with a breathable membrane and a blend of Kevlar. Such robust construction ensures the garment is waterproof, fire-retardant, tear, cut and abrasion-resistant. In short, ready for almost anything.
A single peeler suit generates a total of 17 bags, each meticulously crafted in London by the highly skilled team at Wizard Works. These RÆMADE bags embody the spirit of reinvention, innovation and most certainly collaboration, themes both brands heartily embrace.
The peeler suit is an artefact that features in a series of upcycled garments that live within RÆBURN’s AW22 collection. It has the potential for a wealth of second lives - a potential recognised by RÆBURN Creative Director, Christopher Raeburn, and ultimately shared with first-time collaborators, Wizard Works, in late summer of 2022.
This collaboration is the sum of two like-minded businesses expressing their skill with intent; investing their time and expertise to build supremely fit-for-purpose products. The designs are underpinned by a desire to create responsibly, with minimal waste, delivering a truly enduring product with distinct utilitarian value. You can shop the capsule here.
