Cycling and creative propensities often go hand in hand, if the friendly fleet of bicycles outside the INT studios is anything to go by. A brand that knows the various links between aesthetics and athletics is Fred Perry, as proved by its latest venture to commission some beautiful illustrated patches. Working with our own INT Works, five illustrators were tasked with creating a patch design based on their own city, including London, New York, Tokyo, Munich and Paris. For our home city of London, Thomas Slater depicted a very sweet little pedaler against the capital’s skyline, while Gabe Designs’ glorious Munich patch shows the German countryside reflected in a pair of shades, and Damien Correll strips bustling New York down to a single arch.
