Looking to offer an accurate expression of British youth, the cast featured in the lookbook is actually Blondey’s Instagram followers. Comprised of nine pieces, the special range puts a South-London spin on recognizable Fred Perry staples with elements inspired by customized school uniforms.
This time around, Blondey reworks the iconic Fred Perry Shirt with a jacquard argyle design done in a rich blackberry shade. Serving as a contemporary sports-style adaptation, the knit piece features a soft construction complete with concealed zip closure. Notable outerwear pieces include a reworked tennis bomber and a premium quilted jacket constructed of waxed poly/cotton fabric from textile specialists Halley Stevensons.
Check out the lookbook above and expect the Fred Perry x Thames FW18 collection to be available at Fred Perry’s web store and select locations come October 5.
