For Spring 2012 Fred Perry introduces the second drop of the popular Cycling Blank Canvas collection following the success of the previous drop.
As we all know, the link between Fred Perry and subculture is a strong one, and cycling nestles itself within the brand’s history and contribution to street culture nicely. The cycling shirt has been an essential part of the Mod wardrobe since the 1960’s, and so to celebrate this, the Cycling Blank Canvas collection combines the clean cut Mod sensibilities with clothing fit to take on the lifestyle of the modern cyclist.
The collection boasts 5 new cycling t-shirts, all featuring the 100% cotton classic pique material with zip-down plackets, a nylon cire zip-down jacket, and a cyclist must, the messenger bag. The bag, Jacket, and a few of the shirts feature the ‘Championship’ stripes, which are a perfect accompaniment to the sporting activity hitting London in the summer. Obvious highlights here include the polka dot shirt, in classic black on white and including rear button down pockets and funnel neck. The same funnel neck used throughout the collection, giving the shirts a streamlined feel, which makes perfect sense. My personal favourite shirt is the vertical stripe cycling shirt above, which again makes use of the ‘Championship’ stripes, running the length of the shirt, and is finished off very nicely with the iconic wreath logo, the black popping off the body on the yellow stripe.
