It's been flagged for months, with Fred Perry unwilling to even send us promotional shots in advance. But that doesn't matter now, as the Amy Winehouse Collection for Fred Perry is now online and available to buy.
It's all very 'retro', much of it with a late 50s, early 60s vibe, with a few OTT pieces throwing in some sensationalism. We've picked out a couple of pieces – to the left a Cropped Harrington Jacket with Prince of Wales Check body, black cotton sleeves, ribbed cuff and waistband and two front pockets, retailing for £195.
To the right, you'll see a Twin Tipped Shirt with deep five button placket, small stand up collar, twin tipping on collar, fixed turn-back cuffs and an embroidered Laurel Wreath. That goes for £55. You'll probably catch site if the Pencl Skirt and Capri Pants, selling for £80 and £95 respectively. Want to see more? Check it all out online right now.
