The great thing about Fred Perry is that the classic polo t-shirt is not just a great wardrobe staple, it’s synonymous with everything from This is England-esque skinhead party scenes to strawberries on the lawns of the mansions of famous tennis players. Now this classic brand is turning the ripe old age of 60, it has summoned some of the best creatives in the world of art and fashion to reinterpret the t-shirt as they see fit.
So expect ruched, croptop transformations from Jalouse magazine, furry sleeves from Dazed & Confused, paintballs from MOTHER in New York, and a cheeky little number six from Damon Albarn himself. Even if these are all a little too far from the original to wear down the local shops, you can’t deny it’s a really lovely way to celebrate a milestone.
