A Style Guide: Fred Perry x Raf Simons by Bodega
Boston, Massachusetts’s boutique Bodega has put together a 2015 spring style guide for the latest Raf Simons x Fred Perry collection.
The relationship between Fred Perry and Bodega can be traced back to a 2014 footwear release, the 1934 Canvas Reissue project, which was so successful for the two they are now embarking on another project that highlights the eleventh collaborative collection between Fred Perry and designer Raf Simons.
For the new collection Bodega has a presented a spring style guide featuring select pieces from the 2015 range of polo shirts, t-shirts, jackets, and more.
The new collection takes cues from Simons’ usual monochromatic approach but also incorporates additional visual touches that play into the influences of this collection.
Organic and abstract forms inspired by Africa serve as the graphic all-over prints throughout a number of the pieces. Music and its subcultures are also an element that Simons likes to include in his designs. With the new Fred Perry collaboration Simons integrates this motif with a series of embroidered badges that resemble album covers.
This is an all-around diverse collection of sweaters, polos, tees, jackets, and shirts. Highlights of the collection include the color block and all over print designs, the fishtail parka, and the trademark Raf Simons polo with a detachable collar.
To make the look complete for their style guide, Bodega has even outfitted the model in their 2014 collaboration with Fred Perry in addition to offering a look at some other Fred Perry footwear models.
