Christopher Ræburn has worked with Victorinox over the course of almost a decade. RÆBURN was first approached by Victorinox to collaborate on a men's and women's wear capsule collection in 2011. The makers of original Swiss army knives set up a “RÆMADE in Switzerland” studio in Ibach, the birthplace of Victorinox founder Karl Elsener, where RÆBURN not only sourced the fabrics for his collection, but also found the original house in which Elsener launched the brand. It was here that RÆBURN chose to establish his Swiss LAB, where he would produce the 100 pieces of each style by hand. The collaboration launched on schedule during New York Fashion Week in February 2011.
