A statement for WWD from Mitch Amy's Daddio said 'When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available.'' So maybe it was what she would have wanted so her fans could share her legacy?
I understand the partnership had another three collections at the ready but is this just a tad too soon? Maybe it will be iconic and go down well with the now deceased singers fans and generate ALOT of press attention for Fred Perry, I for one just think it is far too soon after her passing.
But, like that fees from the collection will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundatation. Nice touch there eh Fred Perry?
Parisian Vogue (2008) editiorial - L'idole featuring Isabeli Fontana as Winehouse just shows her impact on the fashion industry when she was in her heigh day.
