60 Years of Fred Perry
Thursday, 7th Jun 2012
2012 sees Fred Perry celebrate 60 years as an icon of street fashion, with a series of special events and limited edition items being launched throughout the year. Formed in 1952 by the British tennis legend and table tennis champion of the same name; Fred Perry has crossed over from a purely sporting heritage, sharing a unique relationship with British subcultures that continues to be relevant today. The past 60 years has built on this unique sports and streetwear history, forming one of the most enduring and affectionate relationships between youth culture and a brand.
Our 60 year activity begins with six limited edition Fred Perry shirts, inspired by archive pieces and created using colour references taken directly from the original 1950s catalogue. Made in England, the Authentic ’52-‘12 twin tipped shirts feature specially designed Laurel Wreath branding, commemorating our founding and anniversary dates.
