Following the release of the Bee Line Hiking capsule with BBC, Timberland continues its partnership with British fashion designer Christopher Raeburn with a new Earthkeepers by RÆBURN collection for Spring/Summer 2022. This collaboration focuses on sustainable and boundary-pushing designs for the outdoors.
“I’m incredibly excited to share our latest innovations within the Earthkeepers by RÆBURN collection,” says Raeburn. “Every piece in the SS22 capsule was designed with a greener future in mind, taking only what we need and using it responsibly. And stylistically, we’ve drawn on the brand’s work and outdoor heritage, as well as the extensive archive we have at the RÆBURN Lab in London, to bring a fresh and progressive new look to the market.”
Kicking off the collection is the Earthkeepers by RÆBURN GreenStride Edge EK+ Hikers. The lightweight lace-up hiker comes in two beige nubuck colorways, one in men’s and the other in women’s sizing. The eco-conscious design incorporates GreenStride comfort soles made of 75% renewable bio-based material with sugar cane and rubber from trees, breathable ReBOTL fabric linings containing at least 50% recycled plastic, and uppers made with Tencel x Refibra fabric.
The apparel side includes a water repellent parka and matching zip-off pants made from organically-grown cotton free of chemicals and pesticides. The set opts out of dye coloring, showing its natural beige color. In a similar fashion, a Packable Camo-Print Anorak and pants feature an all-over earth camo print while being able to be packable into a compact state. In addition, tees, long sleeves, bags, and a camo bucket hat round out the collection.
The Timberland Earthkeepers by RÆBURN SS22 collection is available now on Timberland.com and at Timberland storefronts and select retailers.
