Raf Simons x Fred Perry AW13 collection

While the on-going collaboration between¬†Fred Perry and Raf Simons has not really broke new ground in it’s product offering, there are always a few gems in each collection. For Autumn/Winter 2013, Raf once again visits Mod culture (think¬†checkerboard shirts) and mashes it against American collegiate wear (varsity jackets w/ chenille letters). The presentation is nicely done with¬†Pierre Debusscherre behind the lens with styling by¬†Robbie Spencer (fashion director at Dazed & Confused). Keeping with the line’s inspirations the location of this shoots¬†Hippodrome de Boitsfort (¬†a former racecourse in Brussels built in 1875).

My personal favorites are the electric blue duffle coat, the knit polo and the burgundy varsity. Take a look at the rest of the collection after the jump.
