Last Thursday Fred Perry took time to sit down with Sir Peter Blake and ask him about the inspirations and history behind his work, as we celebrated the launch of our new blank canvas collaboration.

After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy’s family, Fred Perry has decided to release the AW11 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Collection. Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece. In such circumstances, Amy’s royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse Foundation. Fred Perry will also make a seasonal donation to the Foundation.
Amy's father Mitch Winehouse has said: "When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name."

Last night saw our Spitalfields shop transformed into a mini gallery space as we celebrated the launch of our blank canvas collaboration with Sir Peter Blake. The shop played host to an intimate event for close friends and family of both artist and brand, with the three shirt styles on display. Outside the shop visitors were invited inside Sir Peter's Art Bus, displaying a selection of the artist's signature prints.
Our Spitalfields shop will remain as a Peter Blake pop-up space until Sunday. Each of the three colour options has been created in a strictly limited run of 1,000 and will be available to buy here during this time, as well as at our Laurel Wreath Collection shops and online at FredPerry.com.
