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.

Laurel Wreath menswear has a strong graphic influence for Autumn Winter 2012. Applications and details take inspiration from British post war op artists; with a focus on the use of pattern, line and colour across styles.
Seams are shifted and back panels colour blocked, creating a strong modernist aesthetic. Irregular vertical stripes and graduated dot placement prints are used across shirts and Italian merino wool knitwear. Micro gingham checks, Italian manufactured tonal checks and stripes are seen across woven shirting. Details are considered and playful with the use of different chest pocket shapes and collar fastenings. Pants and single colour shirting are offered in soft touch cottons and subtle herringbone twills.
Across outerwear, classic shapes are given subtle updates, creating clean minimal lines. Most notable pieces are the Raglan Sleeve Raincoat, made in London using British Millerain fabric and a cotton and alpaca blend Herringbone 3 Button Jacket, also made in England.
Functional canvas lined waxed nylons are seen across the bag range; whilst micro dot and arrow patterns used within the apparel range are applied to merino and lamb’s wool scarves.
The clean lines and modern aesthetic seen within the clothing range is apparent across the footwear collection. Standout styles include the Beatty suede, a desert style boot with a thick crepe sole and the Donegan Leather & Wool Shoe, a brogue style panelled with rich marl wool and smooth leather.

Mother of pearl buttons and champagne tipping details add a sophisticated hint of colour to the silk knit Fred Perry shirts and pique dress.
Stand up collar shirts and oversizded gingham checks are teamed with flood length skinny trousers complete with leopard print turn ups; worn with the all black bomber jacket this contemporary take on a 1950s look is characteristic of Amy’s style
The stand out piece is the leopard print tonal button down collar shirt dress, complete with waist cinching belt. The range remains very typically Amy; sexy, stylish and individual.
