Fred Perry collaborates with Amy Winehouse
Fred Perry has collaborated with pop star Amy Winehouse on a 17-piece clothing and accessories collection.
The collection shows Winehouse’s quirky input on classic Fred Perry pieces, including the twin-tipped M12 polo shirts, the Harrington jacket and the jumper dress.
Key pieces include a feminine fifties-style twin set, a super-short pencil skirt and a mini shirt dress inspired by fifties bowling wear. Most pieces use Winehouse’s trademark black and pink.
Winehouse said: “I’m really excited about doing this collection with Fred Perry. We’ve been working on it for a while and it’s great to see it finally come to fruition.”
John Flynn, managing director of Fred Perry, added: “We have had a great relationship with [Winehouse] over the years as she has been a loyal fan and supporter. Amy’s sense of style and attitude to music and fashion pervades through this collaboration.”
Wholesale prices range from £22 to £100. The collection is currently being sold to wholesale partners for delivery in October.
Meanwhile, Fred Perry’s collaboration with Liberty of London will hit stores next month.
The collection, called Blank Canvas, comprises Fred Perry polos, shirts and jackets featuring Liberty prints.
Blank Canvas will be sold in Fred Perry stores and also via wholesale accounts including Liberty and selected indies such as Hip in Leeds, Ibson in Stamford and Philip Browne in Norwich.
The range includes four classic Fred Perry pieces styled using two of Liberty’s classic prints: the paisley “Mark” and floral “Edenham” prints.
The collection includes four re-worked classic M12 polos, two in black with ecru tipping and two in white with larkspur and berry red tipping. The polos have then either been printed all over in each Liberty print or feature the print on the inner collar and placket.
Other pieces are a short-sleeved shirt fully printed in both Liberty designs and a classic Fred Perry black Harrington jacket with Mark print lining.
Wholesale prices range from £32 for the polo shirts to £70 for the Harrington jacket.
