However you choose to remember Amy Winehouse- whether for her soul-shaking voice chops crooning the irony-tinged ‘Rehab’, her patented thick winged-liner and beehive combo, or her perennial merry-go-round presence in British tabloids, Fred Perry’s release of the final Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collaboration ensures that the very best of her style sensibilities live on.
Celebrating her love for vintage 1950’s Americana, Winehouse’s last collection includes prints of Cadillacs, jukeboxes and other retro items on silhouettes gleaned from her favourite period. The most poignant piece, a black and white checked button up shirt with Amy embroidered on the breast pocket, is a reminder of the legacy Amy Winehouse left behind – classic, yet cheeky; a perennial love for a time passed, infused with modernity and an innate sense of style – and oh, what a legacy it was.
The Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Spring/Summer’12 collaboration is now available in all Fred Perry stores. Prices start from RM189 for a scarf.
