Spring 2013 sees the launch of a collection of contemporary interpretations of some of our most iconic, sports inspired pieces. The Capsule Sportswear Collection combines a sharp, modernist silhouette with traditional performance fabrics; accented by bold pops of colour taken from our early sportswear catalogues.
The classic Fred Perry shirt has given a 21st century makeover. Maintaining its clean lines, a laser cut bonded pocket has been added to the chest, fastening with a streamlined reverse coil zip. Laser cut eyelets under the arms combine with a sports mesh lining for a technical feel, whilst a specially designed silicone Laurel Wreath print completes the look.
Traditional crew neck sweats have been modernised with concealed zip pockets, and overdyed in vintage hues. Elsewhere in the collection, a lightweight and innovative technical Harrington jacket has been crafted in a special metal infused yarn. Finished with a waterproof zip fastening and functioning back vent; this key jacket style is a seamless blend of form and function.

In continuation of our 60 Year Anniversary celebrations, our Laurel Wreath Collection plays host to a selection of limited edition 60 Year pieces; offering a contemporary take on four styles originally seen in the 1952 Fred Perry Sportswear catalogue.
The 1952 garments, originally designed with sportswear performance in mind, were considered progressive both in terms of the fabrics and designs of their day. The 1952 Fred Perry shirts, made from 100% cotton and manufactured using a specially created cellular mesh knit, were designed for ultimate freedom of movement and to keep the wearer cool - as it turned out these were ideal not just for athletes, but also for the young lads who wanted to dance all night in crowded jazz clubs. The heavyweight zip through cardigans with flat knit collars designed for pre match journeys had a pared down style and embodied a forward thinking ideology that also appealed to these fledgling Mods.
The all black 60 Years Collection maintains the clean and simple design ethos of the original styles; details are functional and understated with the use of self-coloured zips and single needle stitching. Fabrics have been modernised, utilising Italian merino wools and mercerised cottons - selected for their softer handle and drape. Rich leather and suede mix heritage style plimsolls give the collection a distinct finish that stays true to heritage and modernism.
