Athletics Blank Canvas 2012

Fred Perry celebrates a heritage built on sporting excellence with a unique Athletics blank canvas for summer 2012. Back in '52 the creation of our first cotton pique shirt was seen as a revolutionary move, adding a technical edge to the traditional tennis shirt whilst also allowing for maximum freedom and breathability on the court. 60 years on and Fred Perry have contemporised the pique shirt once more, creating four limited edition shirts with modern sports-tech detailing including panels of performance mesh, laser cut pockets, air vents and rubberised branding. The finished pieces are the perfect hybrid of traditional and technical details, adding a modernist edge to our unmistakable styling.

The Athletics Blank Canvas Collection is now available online, and in our Laurel Wreath Collection Shops. Visit our shopfinder HERE.



The Golden Lane Estate

For SS12, we chose the Golden Lane Estate in the City of London as the backdrop for our men's Laurel Wreath Collection shoot. Designed by architects Chamberlin, Powell and Bon, the Grade 2 listed council housing complex was created in the 1950s rejecting the traditional rows of residential housing in favour of a more contemporary urban village. The clean lines and graphic squares of colour on the buildings fit beautifully with the contemporary modernist direction of the SS12 Collection; reflecting how subtle and considered changes can make all the difference.

The SS12 Laurel Wreath Collection is the first to be designed by 6876 founder and designer Kenneth MacKenzie. Kenneth's acute attention to detail and preference for architectural silhouettes works perfectly with the Laurel Wreath ethos of sharp, attitudinal design.

Richard Nicoll SS12 Mainline Show

Current women's Laurel Wreath designer Richard Nicoll showcased his mainline collection at London Fashion Week this Sunday; garnering wide spread praise for a SS12 collection punctuated with themes clearly visible in his Fred Perry styles.

The SS12 mainline collection adopted a mid sixties silhouette, with tailored shifts and babydoll dresses given a futuristic edge with structured hoop skirts and sharp hemlines. Nicoll continued to reference the eccentricity of 60s Paris; with an ethereal rose print spread across a palette of washed out blues, making the design appear as if it was created underwater. We'd like to congratulate Richard and his team for another stand-out presentation, and look forward to presenting his SS12 styles for Fred Perry Laurel Wreath early next year.

Check back later this week for a look behind the scenes at Richard's SS12 mainline show.
