Having just spent four days in Copenhagen I have returned to England inspired. Inspired to have cheek bone implants. Inspired to have my legs stretched. Inspired to ride my bike in the pouring rain while maintaining an air of stylish confidence.
On my first afternoon in the city there was an almighty down pour. As I scurried along with my shoulders hunched over, spluttering as I fought with my umbrella, the cycle path along side me was busy with Copenhageners pedalling – through the torrential rain - with an effortless sartorial style. Meanwhile, as my double denim outfit became rain-soaked, heavy and crumpled, I cursed myself for not being a practical packer.
Of course the perfect thing to have taken would have been one of Christopher Raeburn's Parachute Parkas.

I’ve always admired Christopher Raeburn’s work. His innovative use of sustainable fabrics, his attention to detail and superb cut ensure his collections offer premium quality – as well as functionality and a sense of fun.
Raeburn has received New Generation sponsorship to show his SS11 collection during London Fashion Week. His inspirations for next season are dazzle camouflage, adaptability and the great outdoors. I can’t wait.
