60 seconds with Bradley Wiggins

 

Aw1

National hero and British sporting legend, Sir Bradley Wiggins has now collaborated for 6 seasons with Fred Perry - creating together a stylish collection that heavily references Bradley's cycling heritage. 

The Autumn/Winter 2014 collection - now in-stores - features both new and reworked favourites offered in vintage inspired patterns and colours. Hints to his love of 60s style can be found in slim-cut turtle neck knits and retro sports track jackets. 

Bradley was involved in every step of the design process, with inspiration taken from classic cycling jerseys, and pieces found in the Fred Perry archives.  

Currently undertaking an intense training schedule, we met up with Bradley for a catch-up, and to hear his thoughts on his collection, music and of course, cycling...

When we first met in 2012 you mentioned you were nervous about whether people would take to the collaboration or not, the collection has since gone from strength to strength. What are you most excited about seeing in your next collection?

 For the next collection, I am most excited to see the kids range

 

We’ve just produced the first Bradley Wiggins Kids shirts together, you said you bought your first Fred Perry back in 1989 when it was a slightly left-field choice, are either of your children into the Laurel Wreath yet?

 …which brings me onto the answer to the next question. My son Ben is very into the Laurel Wreath already. My little girl pinched his parka so I'm guessing she's next

 Is there anyone in particular whose style inspires you at the moment or who you’d really like to see wearing a Bradley Wiggins Shirt?

  I'm always looking a at loads of different style icons if you like from many different eras. There's not really anybody in particular that I style myself on, I take many differ elements and do my own take. I would've loved to have seen Steve Marriott in one of my shirts.

We really enjoyed your BBC 6 Music special with Paul Weller, could we see a future disc-jockey in you much further down the line?

Really enjoyed the Radio 6 thing too, it's something I'd love to be able to do in future. 

 

You’ve said previously that the Northern music scene has stayed much more underground than the South’s, are there any bands or musicians that you’re listening to at the moment that we should know about?

Not really. I'm listening to the Stone Roses again just now. I've been enjoying a reggae cd a Jamaican athelete gave to me at the Commonwealth Games. 

 

This year saw the 20th anniversary of Blur’s Parklife and the beginning of what was to become Britpop. What was your favourite nineties album and do you have any fond Britpop memories?

 Definitely Maybe. That album, the video of "Live Forever" on MTV. Some powerful imagery and the sense that music/culture could change things.

Having just won your fourth Silver medal at the Commonwealth Games and having claimed victory at the Tour of California earlier this year, are there any plans for a holiday before the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro or are you straight back into training?

Yes I'm looking forward to a short trip to NYC in November for my wedding anniversary. After that the family will combine training and holidays, there won't be any time! we often go to Majorca because the roads and terrain are fantastic for cycling whilst the kids can enjoy the beach. It's the best of both worlds. 

 

A few years on from the Wiggo Effect and the London Olympics, the Tour de France can be seen departing from England, do you see the resurgence of cycling particularly in London being a lasting one?

Yes absolutely 100%. Cycling is a real viable, sustainable, green, transport alternative. By using cycling as a tool to get about it becomes a simple way of fitting exercise into your daily life without thinking about it, that fits around work and life. Aside from all that it's damned enjoyable and I love it. 

 

Bradley, good luck and thank you for your time!

Fred Perry : Soho Neon

London's Soho is the home of the modern jazz scene, the home of all-night dancing dens, skiffle clubs, coffee hubs, beat poets, the birth place of British rock. Fred Perry has appeared in the streets of Soho since 1952 through a long lineage of British subcultures adopting the Laurel Wreath as a badge of honour. 

This season, Fred Perry captures the vibrancy and colour of Soho with a collection inspired by the neon signs which illuminate London’s most famous and infamous area.  

We are proud to introduce Soho Neon by Fred Perry, now available in Fred Perry Authentic stores, and online.
