Raeburn was already into shark-infested territory with the fall/winter 2015 menswear collection he showed in January, which included shark silhouettes on sweaters and scarves, alongside jackets fashioned from recycled life rafts.

But only these mittens are available immediately, via Wool and The Gang’s website, where shoppers can either purchase them readymade, or opt for a kit with a pattern and supplies for home-knitters to make their own.

From brands celebrated for their smart approaches to sustainability in fashion—Raeburn often uses recycled materials and Wool and the Gang celebrates small-scale, community-based production—the DIY mittens are a sharp, silly, and stylish attack on fast fashion.
