To celebrate 60 years of oversized polo shirts (or I’m just too thin for this shit), Fred Perry asked 60 shitheads from fashion, art and music to customize the classic Laurel Wreath logo polo for a traveling installation that’s gonna hit London and Beijing in the near future. They’re gonna be auctioned off to benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation which presumably funds programs to get susceptible youth hooked on drugs. Personally, I think some of these are pretty crappy eh?
Wtf Damon Albarn? Could you leave your African choir practice for just a bloody 15 minutes and make an effort?
This one is really cool. You can’t wear it as a fascinator, put it on your mantle or give it to your corgie to chew on.
A little representation from our favourite queer pop culture Canadiana smartass, Douglas Coupland. I actually like his design a lot. C’est tres Coups, bro.
Duffy’s is my favourite. I would wear this in a second if they FUCKING CAME IN MY SIZE.
And an embarrassing entry from our very own Harry Rosen. Looks like Harry and Damon Albarn called each other to Skype about their designs.
Horace Panter, you clever fuck.
Raf Simons, of course. No surprise he chose his usual vigilante activist chic as the design. Punk rockers will be lining up everywhere at Fred Perry stores to bid on this one.
You can view most the collection here.
Congrats Fred Perry!
