London, July 6, 2012 – Fred Perry and Raf Simons are delighted to show the first images of their eighth definitive apparel collaboration. The SS13 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 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.
Raf Simons and Fred Perry’s initial, highly successful partnership ran from AW08 through to SS11 and garnered niche, global distribution within a number of key accounts.
