Richard Nicoll for Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection
Thursday, 9th Aug 2012
This season's final Richard Nicoll for Fred Perry Laurel Wreath collection centres around an equestrian theme that plays on the idea of British eccentricity. The statement equestrian horse print, harlequin patterns and sequinned panels are presented in a rich palette of blues, magenta, pink and opal throughout the range. Classic Fred Perry styles have been revisited, with the designer's signature feminine tailoring adding a sophisticated sensibility.
Harlequin pattern cashmere mix sweaters are layered over jewel tone and regal coloured shirts. Solid colour 1970s inspired dresses are finished with keyhole Laurel Wreath embroidery. The wool tuxedo trousers cut at 7/8 and silk satin shorts complete the look.
Outerwear is classic and understated – the Harrington is offered in a silk and cotton satin and the bonded mac features a contrast purple lining. The equestrian theme is continued through to accessories with a soft leather saddle bag in tan and cartridge bag in chocolate. The Laurel Wreath Collection also features wedge heeled suede moccasins with chunky tassels, available in Navy and Ginger.
