An original interpretation of time honoured British styles, the AW13 collection from Fred Perry comes equipped with a capsule of unique knits and contemporary, knitwear inspired designs.
Taking influence from the homespun knits of the 1950′s, Fred Perry have revived a selection of archive knitting patterns across a range of their best loved designs as part of their British Knitting Patterns collection.
Classic cold weather accessories are the perfect vehicle for this traditional craft and as part of their AW13 Fred Perry have created a selection of knit hats an scarves, all of which are crafted from lambswool with a chunky handle and feature a traditional fairisle style pattern.
This pattern also enjoys pride of place across the shoulders of a satisfyingly substantial knit turtle neck sweater, a classic piece of British cold weather attire, finished off with the iconic laurel at the chest.
Speaking of iconic, when it comes to Fred Perry no piece if more recognisable than their classic polo shirts and no FP collection would be complete without an offering in the realm of this timeless piece of style.
For the British Knitting Patterns capsule the M12 Polo has been re-imagined with a contrasting cable knit pocket in a contemporary design that harks back to the DIY knits that inspired the collection.
In keeping with that quintessentially British do it yourself that inspired the collection each piece comes with a knitting pattern of your very own, offering you a chance to place your own stamp on the history of this unique tradition.
