We're delighted to announce that we'll be co-sponsoring designer Richard Nicoll's SS12 show at this month's London Fashion Week. Having developed a close working relationship with Richard whilst developing our collaborative collection, sponsoring the show seemed a natural step and we look forward to seeing his trademark feminine tailoring on the catwalk.
Richard's collaboration as womenswear designer for our Laurel Wreath Collection continues to be a great success, as he explained recently: "I became interested in fashion through a love of expression of individuality through youth subcultures and so this collaboration feels a natural fit based on Fred Perry's historical importance as the British youth cultures clothing label of choice"

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.
