ACKNOWLEDGING 10 YEARS OF COLLABORATION BETWEEN FRED PERRY
AND RAF SIMONS, WE CELEBRATE AND LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE.
INTRODUCING THE AUTUMN 2018 COLLECTION – THE FIRST IN A NEW DECADE.

Drawing on inspiration from his own eponymous label, Raf Simons brings his bold and graphic design
approach to classic Fred Perry styles. Earthy tones of soft grey, caramel and goji berry accent bases of black, navy and white with further pops of colour from high-shine duct tape, as well as unexpected tartan panelling across the shoulders, on pockets, and inside hoods. These details were inspired by Simons’ mainline offering and take their cue from the DIY nature of punk.
Reworking classic Fred Perry shapes, Simons continues to play with proportion, with oversized T-shirts,
sweatshirts and jackets. Workwear and utilitarian details feature throughout the collection, with pressed
pockets and dual-branded patches.

The following pieces of this just released collection are now available in store:

Fred Perry x Raf Simons SS18

Inspired by subculture and the energy of youth, Raf Simons brings his distinctive design approach to Fred Perry archive styles, finding a match for his ethos of proud individuality.

Taking Fred Perry key pieces, he infuses details from his eponymous label, whilst exploring the DIY nature of punk dressing and the attitude that goes with it. Duct tape is applied in a deliberately non-symmetrical way on various pieces; on collars, side seams and underneath
the embroidered Laurel Wreath.

Simple yet bold additions to otherwise minimal items, inspired by the customisation found in subcultural uniforms. The Fred Perry pique polo shirt is reinterpreted once more in a way that feels new and subversive; darted and with contrast collar and tipping.

T-shirts 100€, pique shirts 130€, sweatshirts 180€, hoodies 190€, jacket 320€ and pants 180€.

The collection is launching on February 15th in Beam, welcome to check out our selection!
