London-based label Charles Jeffrey LOVERBOY has reunited with Fred Perry for the second installment of their ongoing collaboration. The collection once again reworks traditional pieces, fusing influences from youth culture, individualism and punk spirit.
A particular inspiration for this collection is the British music scene in the mid-2000s, when indie rock and electronic music combined to create the Nu Rave scene. The energy of this period is referenced through the use of metallic thread on shirting, while knitwear arrives in a combination of “Fiery Red,” “Fair Aqua” and “Classic Blue” colors. The mismatched effect continues onto the kntited rugby shirt, which mixes different knit textures and gauges.
A stand out piece in the collection is the color blocked bomber jacket, which also features a frosted hem and cuffs, as well as contrasting flap pockets. The jacket is finished with a dark blue padded lining, complete with a “doodle print” designed by Charles Jeffrey.
