checking in with fred perry



Fred Perry continues to rack up its amazing list of collaborations with a 12-piece men’s line to be produced in conjunction with Raf Simons, who himself is busy as creative director of Jil Sander. The all-black collection is inspired by Perry’s 1960s skiwear and will include a short-sleeve mohair turtleneck sweater (!!); a patterned, knit polo shirt; a full button-down long-sleeve pique polo; and sleek trousers. Dropping in the fall.

On the tennis front, their brand got decent exposure this last month because of Andy Murray‘s decent showing at Wimbledon (quarters) and at Toronto, where he made it all the way to the semis, losing to Nadal but not before taking down Nole 6-3, 7-6 (3) in the round prior.

Fall goods: The Fred Perry e-shop doesn’t have much to offer right now. That landing page is pretty cute, though.
