Fred Perry x Amy Winehouse autumn/winter 2011 collection goes on sale posthumously
I'm sure there are mixed feelings about whether this should actually be going on sale so soon after Amy Winehouse's tragic death, but according to the company, 'with the blessing of Amy's family', the Fred Perry x Amy Winehouse autumn/winter 2011 collection has now gone on sale.
With the latest collection being launched so soon, we can presume it was already completed and ready to hit the shelves. With 'the usual royalties' from the collection being donated to the soon to be established Any Winehouse Foundation, I guess it does make sense to release it onto the market, rather than just sit in a storeroom, even if it does seem just a little soon for it.
Anyway, check out the images above and the full collection over at Fred Perry. For the record, the '50s-inspired items above are (on the left) the Amy Bowling Shirt, which sells for £70, the knitted silk skirt (£80) and the Amy Leather Waist Belt (£60). The images on the right features the Houndstooth Tie Neck Dress, one of the more expensive pieces at £150.
