Each Raf Simons x Fred Perry collection is an exploration of a particular subculture, subtly referenced in the pieces that are familiarly Fred Perry, yet interpreted differently with each round of collaboration. For the eleventh edition, it’s all about a mostly monochrome colour palette with bursts of colour from the Africa-inspired prints that cover the classic Fred Perry collared shirts, with unexpected details like embroidered badge logos and textured pockets. This time, a heavy jersey tee and sweatshirt have also been added to the range, great for keeping you stylishly snug in a cold office or classroom; or stylishly sweltering in the 30-degree outdoors. We’re partial to the sweatshirt that comes in a statement shade of Privet Green, emblazoned with an abstract Africa-inspired print in white and yellow. Definitely a piece we don’t mind sweating in the hot sun for.
