Since Fred Perry and Raf Simons are more than familiar with each other as collaborative partners and have recently released the Fall/Winter 2009 collaborative collection, it seems right for both parties to come together again for the celebration of the centenary of Fred Perry’s birth. The Centenary Outfit collaboration which reinterpreted a classic outfit worn by Perry himself in 1947, a capsule extension collection of jacket, trousers, white button down, tie, cable knit jumper, Fred Perry MI Shirt and tennis brogue shoes are available for purchase. Just in at oki-ni is the classic black and white 100 Year Table Tennis Brogue Shoes crafted from monochrome leather on a pair of low-top lace-ups with brogue details. On the side black leather panel, the signature laurel in white marks the shoes as distinctively Fred Perry. Dressy enough to pair with slacks and blazer (and perhaps even test the office waters) but comfortable enough to walk miles in, these kicks epitomize style and function and will last for seasons.
