FRED TIMES TWO

A Wimbledon pandemic is looming large in London, and UK's finest sports herritage brand, Fred Perry, has two irons in the fire. The first is its much publised sponsorship of Andy Murray, the 22 year old (I know, he looks almost 30. So fit and yet so aged, non?) shouldering the burden of England's sporting hopes and dreams. This performance range is strickly for courtside, but a handsome collection.

We also have the brand’s 3rd collaboration with Raf Simon. The A/W 09 range features bold African colours: a welcome relief from the all-black collection. Again the focus is on the laural leaf logo, but there is a sense of fun with some saucy mesh vests, as well as some very nice moccasins (below). Yes please.
