An academic at The University of York has caused a stir in the world of archaeology, by suggesting that graffiti created by the Sex Pistols in the late 70s should be preserved as a heritage site. Dr John Schofield from the Department of Archaeology has suggested that the graffiti should be regarded in the same way as we appreciate ancient cave murals; and that the discovery of the scribbles could be just as significant as the unearthing of early Beatles material, as it captures "a direct and powerful representation of a radical and dramatic movement of rebellion."
The majority of the graffiti appears to come from John Lydon - better known as Johnny Rotten - and features the band as well as other recognisable figures such as their late manager Malcolm Mclaren. Researchers have flocked to the graffiti; discovered behind cabinets in an office building on Denmark St, to determine whether it should be preserved with a blue plaque, as is traditional for sites of national heritage. Whilst a conclusion is yet to be made, many agreed that, whilst the graffiti could be considered crude and offensive in parts, it should remain as a site of historical and cultural importance.

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.

We're pleased to announce the involvement of seminal British artist Sir Peter Blake in our next blank canvas collection. Peter has created some of the most iconic cover art of the last fifty years, most notably for The Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band and Paul Weller's Stanley Road. Launching soon, the collection references the artist's unique affiliation with 60s pop iconography, showcased across three limited edition shirt styles.
