Long-time Fred Perry fan Amy Winehouse teamed up with the brand to create her own 17-piece collection of apparel and accessories. Classic pieces – the twin-tipped M12 polo shirt, the Harrington jacket, the jumper dress – are given the full Winehouse treatment but still remain instantly recognisable.
A girly twinset 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.
“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.” – Amy Winehouse.
John Flynn, managing director of Fred Perry, said: “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.”
