Fred Perry Laurel Wreath - Blank Canvas Cycling Collection Lookbook | By end clothing


Fred Perry bridges the gap between English mod subculture and the sport of cycling with its Blank Canvas Spring/Summer 2012 Cycling capsule collection. Released under the label's premium Laurel Wreath imprint, the goods take the form of jerseys (constructed from 100% cotton pique instead of modern synthetics, contributing to an appealing throwback sensibility) and shorts, plus shiny nylon windbreaker and perforated sneakers in white or black colorways. Hallmarks of the collection are utilitarian details, like ergonomically placed pockets for water botter bottles and the like, and classic colors evocative of Fred Perry's 1960s heritage, the era in which proponents of the mod movement co-opted cycling jerseys as part of their uniform. The collection is expected to land at end clothing in June. See more from the store's dedicated lookbook below.
