Raf Simons and Fred Perry was one of our favorite fashion collaborations last year, and this upcoming s/s ’09 season, the pieces have switched chromatic gears. According to the project’s rep: “the SS09 collection has taken a new direction from their previous ‘all black’ AW08 range. The inspiration is drawn form West African culture which can be seen in the natural fabrics and vibrant colour palette of copper brown, earth orange, regal blue and honey hues worked in multi coloured striping. Sleeves are longer sitting lightly on the fingers, open knits create an interesting combination of both punk and African influences.”The 25 piece collection even includes shoes in the form of tassel loafers. We don’t know about you, but we cant wait for these pieces to punch up our wardrobe.
