Masters in sportwear and street wear fusion, Fred Perry travelled back in time to revisit it’s sportswear archives and the ’60s mod to draw inspiration for the latest Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
Mod wardrobe staples get a modern update in the British heritage brand’s Authnetic collection. Gingham shirts step away from the mod-shop bespoke tailoring and get a stylish reboot in silm silhouettes.
Lending itself to other pieces in the lineup, the Mod trend manifests itself in the color palette, cut-and-sew panels and micro polka dota patterns sported on high-summer shirtings and lightweight alternatives. A red and blue bandana-inspired print that trims shirts and t-shirts is explempary of the 60s reference evident throughout the collection.
While the shirts were inspired mainly by the glorified era, t-shirts took cues from the brand’s sportswear brochures two decades after. Raglan sleeves, taping and cut-and-sew panels are this season’s signature touches.
