Fred Perry has enlisted fellow British designer Margaret Howell for a monochromatic  apparel capsule for Spring/Summer 2019. Each piece echoes Howell’s love for simple, clean-cut lines, yet channels the archival designs from Fred Perry’s 1950s tennis heritage, reworking staples such as the M3 polo shirt.

Howell has adopted a relaxed and oversized approach throughout the capsule collection, adding a high level of attention to detail to every piece. The reworked M3 polo shirt looks to its original ’50s form by combining a fine pique construction with the traditional embroidered Laurel Wreath on the chest. Howell adds mother of pearl buttons from her own collection, as well as an angled placket design, a fine lightweight ribbed collar and side splits finished with internal woven herringbone tape.

The collection is completed by an oversized, cropped, drop-shoulder bomber jacket featuring jersey lining, a tennis skirt and a pair of signature trousers. The trousers are delivered in a straight-cut and draw its inspiration from retro Fred Perry tennis shorts, taking the shorts’ buttoned adjusters from its waistband and creating a trouser that is designed to be rolled up over the ankle. Rounding off the collection is a pair of cotton canvas plimsoles. True to Fred Perry’s heritage, the plimsoles are finished in crisp white and feature the Laurel Wreath emblem.

The Margaret Howell x Fred Perry collection is available now from both brands’ stores, the Fred Perry web store and select retailers.
