Fred Perry x Raf Simons AW13
The classic Fred Perry polo shirt is updated with a checkerboard pattern whilst varsity jackets with oversized lettering and a giant Laurel Wreath emblem take centre stage.
Other key pieces include woven polo shirts and a classic duffle coat.
‘The challenge is exactly the fact that Fred Perry has a very distinctive heritage and identity. I am always interested to see in what way that can be strengthened by collaborating. It is in the first place about understanding each others codes and style but also attitude. It is about respecting each other and working on collections that translate both brands natures and challenge each other by focusing on the differences of each others nature, to create something different from what both would usually do.’ – Raff Simons
