A 12th collaboration for Fred Perry & Raf Simons
Sep 4, 2015
The British brand presents its 12th collection in collaboration with the Belgian designer. Inspired by modern art, the new looks combine Fred Perry's preppy style with a signature Raf Simons sensibility. The collection is available in boutiques and online.
Fred Perry and Raf Simons first partnered back in the fall/winter of 2008 and initially ended their collaboration back in spring/summer 2011, only to begin again July 2013. Their long-lasting collaboration has produced prominent collections combining the values, aesthetic and culture of both worlds. A combination that is evident in every piece of the new collection.
The British brand notes that Raf Simons "brings bold and graphic design sensibilities" to Fred Perry's timeless style -- representing both the past and present of underground culture and providing a modern twist to otherwise classic styles.
The modern art influence can be perceived in the colors and the designs of the fall/winter 2015 collection: multi-colored diagonals on shirt seams and printed t-shirts and a graphic chevron pattern on shirts with zippers. Zippers are very visible and provide a modern feel to the outfits.
The ready-to-wear collection includes V-neck sweaters, three-button cardigans, zip-up polos, vests, shirts, high-neck sweaters and revisited bomber jackets that play with contrasts.
This Fred Perry & Raf Simons collaboration is available in prices ranging between US $110 (for a t-shirt) and US $450 (for the bomber jacket).
