Amy Winehouse : Fred Perry unveils her posthumous collection for the brand
Amy Winehouse’s final collections for Fred Perry will be released
Fred Perry confirm that they will posthumously sell the remaining two ranges designed by the late British singer
Following the tragic and sudden death of a couple of weeks ago there’s been much speculation over whether the two new collections she had designed for Fred Perry would ever be sold. But it’s just been confirmed that the ranges will be posthumously released.
With the blessing of the singer’s family, Fred Perry has confirmed that the autumn/winter 2011 and the spring/summer 2012 collections will hit the shops and the web as planned. What’s more, all royalties and fees from both collections will be donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse Foundation – a charity set up by the singer’s father, Mitch, to help young people struggling with drug addiction.
Mitch Winehouse said in a statement: ‘When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available. All the money we make and the donation that Fred Perry will give will go straight into to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which we are setting up to help children and young people in her name.’
Amy first started collaborating with Fred Perry in March last year to create a 17-piece womenswear collection jam-packed with items in her signature retro style. The line was a hit, with music and fashion fans alike clamouring to grab a slice of the soul singer’s streetwear chic.
The award-winning songstress was signed on to co-design a total of four collections throughout the partnership, but completed only a further two before her tragic death on Saturday 23rd July.
