Oh Raf, what doesn’t turn into gold spun under your magical hands?
For all you Raf Simons fans out there, Fred Perry is pleased to present their 13th collaboration collection with the Belgian couture giant. We’re looking at a slick little capsule collection of vivid modernity featuring a happy marriage between Simons’s bold sensibility and the classic Fred Perry sports aesthetic. Yum.
We’re obviously fans of Fred Perry’s subcultural pieces that pretty much work in every possible era, but the modern art influences and bold graphics from Simons takes everything one step further. It’s the elevation we didn’t even know we wanted, but the bold splash of colour on the usual monochromatic pique shirts and polos is everything. And if you’re just a tad tired of conventional T-shirt cuts, this SS16 collection invites you to join in on the daring proportion play with the new dropped neck T-shirts that sit wider on the body, and tempt with a little peekaboo neck. Frankly, it’s a collaboration that actually brings more than just another famous name to the table, and we’re completely sold.
Raf Simons x Fred Perry Collection, available at the Laurel Wreath Collection Shop at Mandarin Gallery, #03-08.
