Another glimpse at what will be in store for Spring/Summer 2012 – this time from Fred Perry, and a look at their SS12 Amy Winehouse collection. I hadn’t realised that this had been an ongoing collaboration, but it makes sense seeing as though she was often spotted in the classic Fred Perry look. It is tinged with sadness and will obviously be the last collaborative collection. But Winehouse was apparently really involved in these designs, especially with the comic strip print (seen below on the bag) for which she took artwork to the design team for inspiration. Amy always wore the polo shirts with the collars up, so there are some that have been designed specifically to be worn in that way. I love the deep scoop neck tops and the black and white gingham detail. It has a retro ’50s vibe to it – ballet pumps, pink cropped jacket, hot pants – which would look perfect teamed with a classic Amy-style beehive hairdo.
