Christopher Raeburn has opened RÆBURN Lab in Hackney – an experiential retail store that enables customers to browse and shop seasonal collections and exclusives while seeing the brand team at work in the atelier.
RÆBURN Lab is located in the building that previously housed the Burberry archive. The space has been renovated into a modern open plan studio with spaces for the brand’s store, archive, and atelier.
A number of workshops will also be held at the Lab ranging from open studio days for the local community to more advanced workshops where attendees can design and create their own pieces using off-cuts from the atelier.
The new store is the brand’s first permanent retail space following a successful three-month pop-up shop at Coal Drops Yard.
RÆBURN Lab is located at Studio 1, The Textile Building, 29a Chatham Place, E9 6NY. It opens Wednesday to Saturday 12-7pm, and 12-6pm Sunday.
