Fred Perry x 6876 Blank Canvas
Rounding off a fantastic year of blank canvas collaborations that has seen us team up with the likes of Sir Peter Blake, Stussy and Raf Simons; we're pleased to announce the launch of a new ten piece project with modernist brand 6876. Established in 1995, the design house shares our anti-establishment heritage, taking its name from the year of the ‘68 student protests in Paris and the birth of Punk in ’76.
Founder Kenneth Mackenzie and his team have managed to consistently break free from a mainstream approach through carefully considered design details; such as subtle stitch detailing, fabrication, palette and the placement of newly developed dual branding. Combining pieces inspired by the 6876 archive with re-worked Fred Perry shirts and knitwear, the collection creates a unique utility modernist look.
