#Lookbook – Fred Perry collaborates with British musician, Miles Kane on a collection of showstopping pieces with modernist attitude. With a unique position in British music and subcultures, Fred Perry’s Laurel Wreath has been adopted by musicians for decades, with Miles Kane a long-standing fan. Growing up in the Wirral, Miles’ style continues to become more eclectic, more distinctive and more daring, with this collection really showcasing his confident sense of style. Fred Perry designs are adapted with slim silhouettes and luxe fabrics. Showstopping pieces with modernist attitude.
The collection – designed for men and women, has been photographed on Miles Kane with British model Dylan Weller.
“The inspiration for this collection was more night time, this time – dim lighting, Martini- in-hand kinda vibe. We also brought the leopard into play for the first time.” Miles Kane
The Fred Perry Shirt is reimagined with three iterations, with shiny, textured pique, subtle two-tone effect and a shiny gold zip in place of the button placket.
Miles continues to put his spin on other classic Fred Perry shapes, like the V-neck jumper, which he adapts in a lightweight metallic fabric, and the classic tennis bomber, which has a Houndstooth design. This bomber jacket is designed to be worn with the tailored trousers: a sports-inspired take on the suit.
A stand-out piece in the collection is the tracksuit with flock leopard design, fitted with Miles’ signature cropped leg, slim silhouette and gold trims. Inspired by his love of peacock dressing and life on the road, the tracksuit takes its cue from one of Miles’ favourite warm-up outfits.
The faux-fur pea coat is the collection’s grande finale. Made in rich cotton velvet with a full faux-fur lining, it adopts the classic pea coat shape. Inspired by the British subcultural uniform.
