Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Spring/Summer 2013 collection

March 13, 2013

With a collection that takes its inspiration from the British graphic art movement of the early 1980s, comes Kenneth Mackenzie’s latest range for Fred Perry Laurel Wreath.

With a hand-crafted and fundamentally new feel of the collection, experimental construction can be seen in the warp knits, overhead Oxford shirts and Polo shirts with shifted seams. This is contrasted with refined soft tailoring and classic sportwear pieces like the label’s much loved classic Polo shirts, which this season come with collar and cuffs in non-matching colours.

Graphic elements are key – stripes and pixel dots feature throughout (the three colour dot ‘space print’ inspired by early computer cards), and are mixed with tartan, simple pastel colours and subtle detailing. And those details include the envelope neck tipped sweater – itself a take on the classic v-neck, Oxford shirts with ‘latch pockets’ (which button closed or can be worn open, displaying the embroidered wreath) and concealed plackets.

The range is available now, so for more information, to find your nearest stockist, or to buy any of the above from their online shop, go here: Fred Perry Laurel Wreath.

    Solid. It doesn’t set my world alight but it’s got some lovely pieces in it. I like the simplicity of it all and the subtlety of colour used. I’ll be buying the black polo above for Summer.
