Young fashion brand Fred Perry has decided to release its Amy Winehouse autumn 11 range as well as wholesaling the spring 12 collection following the singers death last month.
After careful consideration and blessing from the Winehouse family it will now release its Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection for autumn 11 and will wholesale the spring 12 collection, with Winehouse’s royalties and fees donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse Fountation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation.
The British clothing label first collaborated with Winehouse for an autumn 10 line which featured 50s inspired styles such as mini pencil skirts and cropped knotted shirts in gingham. For spring 11 Fred Perry launched a Hawaiian theme range.
Mitch Winehouse, Winehouse’s father said: “When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name.”
