Ready for Beatlemania 2.0? The original mop-tops form part of Raf Simons’ inspiration for his latest Fred Perry collection, the little thing he does on the side when not showing umpteen collections under his own label and a little house called Dior.
The fall Raf Simons x Fred Perry men’s collection is thoroughly mod. A check pattern is applied to the classic Fred Perry polo shirt, while knits and another house signature, the Harrington jacket, also get the mod treatment.
More Americana than mod is an array of varsity jackets in warm collegiate colors of bottle green, burgundy, mustard, and navy — some with Fred Perry’s famed laurel wreath. The clear standout, however, is an extra-large duffle coat in an electric blue recalling the pop-bright colors of his own men’s line.
