Fred Perry and beloved designer Raf Simons have reunited to present the final instalment of their collaboration.

Building on their previous release, the culminating collection is highlighted in a series of visuals by photographer Ewen Spencer in the basement of London’s 100 Club. Drawing on the location’s atmospheric setting, the collection takes inspiration from the styles, sounds and interiors of late ‘80s and early ‘90s Britain, a time when life was tough, but communities of people came together to unite in music, fashion and friendship.

To create the offering, the Belgain-born creative has reinterpreted classic Fred Perry pieces and infused them “with the sensibilities of his eponymous [now former] line”, resulting in sharp tailoring, over-washed finishes, and designs which are reminiscent of vintage band T-shirts.

The British label’s Polo Shirt leads the line-up, while other items include knits, tees, trousers, jacket and a slew of accessories. Standouts include a head-turning button-down adorned with the words Harmed Joy, Mutual Desired Love, a black and purple chequered cardigan, and an oversized printed parka with bespoke graphic prints and dual branding.

You can cop the final Fred Perry x Raf Simons collaboration now from the brand’s webstore.
