Fred Perry are delighted to announce the launch of their 8th definitive apparel collection Raf Simons X Fred Perry.
‘Collage’ – SS13 offers a very controlled and pure do-it-yourself attitude. The collection shows a juxtaposition of very different materials, prints and colours, therefore giving the wearer a possibility to combine the garments in different ways’.- Raf Simons
The ready to be launched Raf Simons x Fred Perry collection will feature various traditional menswear patterns in electric colours and prints. Classic pieces are adorned with checks, crest and pied de poule, floral print and camouflage in contrast colours. Prints will be blown up out of proportion until they almost lose their identity. The final styling unifies classic but then scaled up or scaled down pattern designs in an unexpected look.
The classic Fred Perry polo is a stand-out piece of the collection with a detachable double collar in different prints and colours. Eclectic combinations will be the driving force behind the collection. Other key pieces include contrast panelled shirts, city shorts, printed scarves, classic and checked pants and a bomber jacket with detachable collar in both navy and black check.
The full Spring/Summer 2013 collection launches in all Fred Perry Laurel Wreath collection shops and online on 22/02.
