As the 125th Wimbledon Championships begin today, all eyes will be on the courts as tennis stars from across the world limber up to compete for the titles. And just as fashions on the courts have seen many incarnations across the decades - from the Williams' sisters flamboyant ensembles to Andre Agassi's neon headbands - those lucky enough to snare a seat are sure to dress up for the occasion. For SS11, Fred Perry Laurel Wreath have looked to the sartorial style of the 50s British tennis player, an era where the cut of a players slacks were as much a talking point as the elegance of his backhand.
Creating a sharply tailored silhouette, this season's Laurel Wreath Collection presents contemporary interpretations of vintage tennis styles from both off and on the pitch. The lightweight 50s style bomber above is perfect for this year's spectators, layered over a crisp gingham shirt and teamed with slim cut trousers. And in keeping with British tradition; if the weather takes a turn for the worse guests can be protected from the elements by investing in the collection's waxed duralinen duffle coat - a stand-out Laurel Wreath Collection style profiled by one of our favourite blogs: The Daily Street.

Nestled on the corner of Seven Dials stands the first of Fred Perry's Laurel Wreath Collection Shops. Since opening in 2004, the Seven Dials shop has hosted our premium label's mens and womenswear alongside some of our most exciting designer collaborations and unique blank canvas concepts. Attracting clothing fanatics with a taste for fine fabrics, local craftsmanship and attention to detail, the shop has seen its fair share of special customers. Joseph Deen from Seven Dials tells us his story of being part of the shop...
“Working in the Seven Dials shop in Covent Garden you often get to meet some pretty special people. One of those people, John Bradbury (drummer of the Specials) is a regular visitor and I got chatting to him one day. That night Fred Perry had organised a Specials gig for their reunion at the legendary 100 Club on Oxford Street. I’d not managed to get a ticket and was pretty gutted... until he asked me if I wanted to go. I jumped at the opportunity and got to see one of my favourite seminal bands I couldn’t have seen the first time around. Right place, right time.”
