It really feels like ages since my last post about clothing
so I wanted to do a special one
and I decided to speak about 2 well established houses of fashion
Fred Perry and Liberty
and a fantastic collaboration they did last year.
HERITAGE ALL OVER THE POST
So, I few facts about Fred Perry and Liberty
The laurel emblem brand, is named under the English tennis and table tennis player Frederick John Perry (18 May 1909 – 2 February 1995)
This brand is commonly known by their famous polo shirts used in the sixties by the Mod culture movement and by the ska and skin culture after them.
I recommend to visit the brand's website
and listen to the Subculture music player you have in it, is really good!

is a long-established department store on Regent Street in Central London
founded by Arthur Lasenby Liberty in 1875
selling ornaments, fabric and rare objects from Japan and the East.
During the years the store became the most fashionable place to shop in London and Iconic Liberty PRINTED FABRICS were used for both clothing and furnishings.
The actual department store in Great Marlborough St, London W1B 5AH
And finally THE collection:
The range includes four classic Fred Perry pieces styled using two of Liberty’s timeless prints; “Mark” (paisley) and “Edenham” (floral)
I love the Edenham print on the inner collar and placket
So, Did you like it?
What do you think about it?
I couldn’t finish a post about Fred Perry without mention the collaboration they did with Amy Winehouse, which I must say, I did like it, :S
Well, is not perfect, but is pretty good
She teamed up with Fred Perry to create a 17-piece retro-inspired wardrobe, consisting of capri trousers, cardigans and mini-dresses.
Fred Perry marketing director Richard Martin said to a British newspaper that the troubled performer had a very hands-on role in the creation of the range.
"Amy has been wearing Fred Perry for years, so we were aware she was a genuine fan of the brand," he said. "She has a unique sense of style that reflects the brand's own historical reference points"
What do you think about this collection?
And this was the main reason I started this post,
I didn’t know shoes were also part in the collection and when I found them
I had to buy them, I
think they are just perfect
