Uniforms urged by youth, Raf Simons‘ 12th collaboration with sportswear brand Fred Perry continues the designer’s deconstructive experiment, playing with—and often times against—the heritage brand’s aesthetic. For Autumn/Winter 2015, the newest Raf Simons x Fred Perry capsule sees bold necklines accented by color blocked collars, unconventional fabrics, and zip-up lengths, which underneath clean and sharp silhouettes sit. It’s a mix of vivid modernism with Simons’ fondness for nostalgia that unite to form neon contrasting and monochromatic subcultural styles. “The challenge is exactly the fact that Fred Perry has a very distinctive heritage and identity,” the designer said in a statement. “It is about respecting each other and working on collections that translate both brand’s natures and challenge each other.”
