Fred Perry and No Doubt Pair Up for New Collection
by Melissa Tunstall
Another day, another celebrity fashion collaboration. This one finds ska and reggae influenced band No Doubt mixing with the polo shirt and argyle sweater brand Fred Perry. Currently, the line consists of one shirt, selling for $95, but plans for a bomber jacket and a v-neck sweater are in place for this spring.
Melding with the preppy look of Fred Perry, No Doubt’s contribution to the line will be the epitomized colors of reggae—be it red, yellow and green hints on the slim fit, unisex polo or a more full-on reference with red, yellow and green tartan on the bomber jacket and sweater. The collaboration may leave some saying “huh?”, but Fred Perry is not new to the rock star partnership, previously teaming with the late Amy Winehouse. And while Gwen Stefani has already made a name for herself in the fashion world, it appears this collab is definitely for the boys. She teams with her band mates, who rocked Fred Perry in the 90s with their brightly colored hair, in the limited collection. Check out the designs at http://www.fredperry.us.
