Behind the Scenes - Bradley Wiggins

Back on an unusually bright October’s day, we spent an afternoon with Bradley Wiggins at a local working men’s club. This was technically work – we were there to shoot Bradley’s Spring 2013 Collection – but there was a laid back feel to the day, with Bradley’s friend and Team Sky’s official photographer Scott Mitchell behind the camera and the club’s staff casually asking the champion cyclist if he’d care to join their darts team.

Bradley Wiggins - Behind the Scenes

Bradley was typically down to earth, with none of the airs or graces you might expect from a man who had just won the Tour de France and several gold medals at the Olympics. During the set-up of an outdoor shot, two teens sped past on bikes yelling "who are you then?" which amused the soon to be Knighted cyclist no end.

The Spring 2013 Bradley Wiggins Collection is available online and in Authentic shops now, as well as Manchester, Berlin and Seven Dials Laurel Wreath Collection shops.

60 Year Customisation Project

Throughout the sixty years of the brand, the Fred Perry shirt has always been the iconic piece; the standard bearer for our Laurel Wreath emblem. Over six remarkable decades some of the most influential figures in fashion, music and sport have worn the shirt, and many have become de facto ambassadors for the brand. As part of our 60 Year anniversary celebrations, we've compiled a list of our 60 most loyal and distinguished fans and requested their participation in a charity fund raising exercise. Designers, musicians, artists and sports people were sent a reproduction of the original 1952 Fred Perry shirt and asked to personalise the shirt with a birthday message or full-blown customisation.

All shirts will be displayed online in the 60 Year microsite at fredperry.com, in-store and at anniversary events before being auctioned for charity later in the year, with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. In collaboration with Dover Street Market and designed by renowned set designer Andy Hillman; Fred Perry will present the first 20 customisations exclusively at Dover Street Market in London on January 26th. The installation will travel to DSM Ginza and I.T. Beijing Market after the London presentation.

Gran Sport Scooters - SX200 Update

You may remember from our earlier chat with Gran Sport Scooters, that the team are currently working on a very special restoration project. After sourcing an SX200 Lambretta, we asked Fred Perry collaborator Bradley Wiggins to choose his own spec for the scooter to be refurbished to.

The scooter has had its original paintwork completely stripped, followed by soft blasting of the metal to create a smooth surface. Each part has then been carefully repainted, before the scooter is finished with specially designed decal stickers. Stay tuned to see the finished scooter, coming soon.
