Due to Wiggo’s domination of the 2012 season and his becoming a global mega star his first season collab with Fred Perry sold out in a matter of days leaving a lot of people high and dry.
Because of this Fred Perry have released a few select items from the winter range early, check them out below followed by the official press release.
Fred Perry is proud to introduce the second collection from Britain’s first ever Tour de France winner and one of the most decorated British Olympians, Bradley Wiggins. Following on from the amazing success of the SS12 collection, two early release styles will be launched online on Thursday the 23rd of August.
For the second instalment of this six season deal, Wiggins stayed true to his modernist credentials, Fred Perry styles are refreshed with iconic cycling details referencing the past. The first drop in August will see classic pieces such as the long sleeve cotton pique shirt updated with specially designed Bradley stripe and a rear hem pocket complete with a sports heritage style zip. The classic cotton pique shirt will return in three new colours: black, olive and enamel blue. Slim fit half zip merino wool shirts with drop hem and GB Stripe detail will be available for the colder months later in the year.
“It’s a partnership I could only have dreamed of…..I have been a lifelong fan of the brand, stemming from my following and commitment to the mod movement and what I believe is Fred Perry’s unparalleled relationship with subculture. Bradley Wiggins, April, 2012
