NEW YORK — Jil Sander isn’t the only label that Raf Simons is designing for this year—British sportswear brand Fred Perry has tapped the avant-garde Belgian designer to create a capsule collection.
The Raf Simons for Fred Perry men’s line will be in stores this fall, and replaces the designer collaboration with Comme des Garçons that Fred Perry has sold for the past seven seasons. The Raf Simons initiative encompasses 13 pieces for fall, and may expand into additional categories next year. The initial agreement between Fred Perry and Simons is for two seasons, but the deal can be extended if both parties agree.
