Amy Winehouse is to launch a clothing collection in collaboration with Fred Perry. Set to launch for Autumn 2010, Richard Martin, Fred Perry’s Marketing Director, told WWD: “Amy has been wearing Fred Perry for years, so we were aware she was a genuine fan of the brand. Amy has a unique sense of style that reflects the brand’s own historical reference points.”

Started 58 years ago as a sportswear collection by tennis icon Fred Perry, the company also has a history of aligning with music stars — such as Paul Weller and Damon Albarn — which has helped grow the label into a more mainstream, musician-favored streetwear brand. And the cheeky-retro look of Winehouse’s line is a style Winehouse herself worked to attention-grabbing effect when she was hitting the red carpet frequently two years ago.

In a palette of mostly black and pink, the 17-piece collection includes a girlish twinset; slim, thigh-skimming pencil skirts; capri pants, a mini bowling dress, and Fred Perry’s signature polo shirts. The collection will continue over four seasons and be sold in Fred Perry Authentic boutiques.

Vivienne Westwood cited the brand as an inspiration and it was voted best selling label by The Face magazine… Some major stars of fashion, music and media have been seen sporting the brand. Gio-Goi claim their current success is due to their rich history which is rooted in music and fashion. Apart from the well publicised collaboration with Pete Doherty and, to a lesser extent, The Babyshambles this summer, Gio-Gio has also been spotted on David Beckham, the raunchy Amy Winehouse, The Enemy, Liam Gallagher and a long list of other stars and wannabees. The brand claims it successful come-back will continue as it looks to develop star-studded style!
