Never one to deliver the predictable, Richard Nicoll's womenswear designs for the AW11 Laurel Wreath Collection are a clash of patent leather and wool, oversized dresses and tailored shirting. Whilst many designers have looked to the swinging 60s for inspiration this season; Nicoll has steered clear of candy-pop colours and taken the collection down a richer route, playing with dark sherry and deep marine blues and looking to the less obvious Parisian Beatniks of that decade for inspiration.

Whilst the soft Breton striped jerseys typically associated with French fashion feature in the collection; the key pattern for this season is a dark sherry check, set against shades of blue, biscuit and vanilla. Woven in wool and printed across pure silk, this signature check is a striking offset to the collection's textured angora knits and sleek patent leather. Favourites include the checked wool Harrington jacket (above right) which is perfect worn with pieces from within your own wardrobe - try teamed with a simple fitted shirt, slim cut trousers and vintage penny loafers for a modern take on the 1950s Teddy Girl.

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."
