Model Jacob Coupe in Fred Perry Laurel Wreath Collection Spring & Summer 2012 Catalogue
Men’s Spring/Summer 2012 Collection
The S/S 12 Menʼs Laurel Wreath collection welcomes a new designer to the fold, Kenneth Mackenzie founder and designer of the influential 6876 label.
Given Fred Perryʼs and Kennethʼs anti establishment credentials the partnership makes perfect sense. The S/S 12 collection blends Mackenzieʼs acute attention to detail and preference for architectural silhouettes and construction with Fred Perryʼs original urban streetwear aesthetic, re-imagining the core iconic Perry pieces; the Fred Perry shirt, the Harrington style jacket, v-neck sweater and cardigan, slim-fit shirting and pencil-leg trousers.
“My guiding design principal is to develop an evolving wardrobe reinterpreting classic menswear, epitomised by Fred Perry, by partnering sharp, attitudinal design with proven traditional materials and construction” – Kenneth Mackenzie, Fred Perry
