Fred Perry collaborates with Northern musician, Miles Kane, on their third collaboration.
With a unique position in British music and subcultures, Fred Perry’s Laurel Wreath has been adopted by musicians for decades, with Miles Kane a long-standing fan. Growing up in the Wirral, Miles now splits his time between England and LA. His style growing more eclectic, more distinctive and more daring.
Currently touring with Coup de Grace, his first solo album in five years, Miles’ latest collection reflects his life back-stage. Iconic Fred Perry designs are adapted with slim silhouettes and a laid-back aesthetic.
The Fred Perry Shirt is reimagined in lightweight piqué, with a fitted silhouette and gold Laurel Wreath embroidery. With five iterations of Fred Perry’s most iconic piece, adaptations include a zipped neck polo shirt, jacquard paneling and one with an exclusive floral fabric by Liberty Fabrics London, inside the placket and back yoke.
The Liberty Fabric also makes up a boxy bowling shirt in floral mercerized cotton, and trims a high-shine Harrington mac.
Miles continues to put his spin on other classic Fred Perry shapes like the knitted shirt, which he adapts with shiny fabrics, luxe textures and ‘70s silhouettes.
A stand-out piece in the collection is the tricot tracksuit, designed with Miles’ signature ‘70s collar, cropped leg and gold trims. Inspired by his love of ‘70s subcultures and the relaxed styling of life backstage, the tracksuit takes its cue from one of Miles’ favourite warm-up outfits.
