Among the many questions raised after Amy Winehouse’s tragic passing last month was if her collections for Fred Perry would still be released. The label had commissioned the singer back in 2010 to complete four collections channeling her personal style and Winehouse had maintained a relationship with the label ever since. After weeks of speculation, it has now been confirmed that the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 collections (which had been completed prior to Winehouse’s death) will be released after Fred Perry obtained her parents’ blessings.
The houndstooth patterns, fitted dresses, and boat necks Winehouse thought up for fall are in keeping with the way she herself dressed. The singer’s father stated that any royalties and fees she would have received from the collaboration will now be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity that he and the rest of Winehouse’s family are working on to help children and young people in her name.
Seeking to get a piece from the collection in Canada? It will be available at the label’s flagship location in Toronto, at Urban Boutique in Edmonton, and can currently be purchased online at fredperry.com.
