Finally! The long-awaited Amy Winehouse/Fred Perry collaboration! A time-honoured Fred Perry fan and aficionado, Amy has now teamed up with the brand on her own 17 piece Fred Perry apparel and accessories collection. Obviously it’s pure Amy – sharp, clever, sexy, lots of attitude – but stays true to the Perry aesthetic and unrivalled heritage. Classic pieces – the twin-tipped M12 polo shirt, the Harrington jacket, and the jumper dress – are given the full Winehouse treatment and still remain instantly recognisable. A girly twin set has Fifties sex siren written all over it, gingham goes from homely to hot, pencil skirts become dangerously short, Capri pants find a punk-inspired edge, a mini bowling shirtdress flaunts in equal measure. Colours are predominantly black and pink. Collars are most definitely raised and ready for action. And yet for every tomboy twist there’s a deeply feminine twirl.
Sadly, the Amy Winehouse collection for Fred Perry won’t be available till October 2010. To sharpen your appetite, just take a gander at these illustrations.
