Photos from Fred Perry
I wandered into Fred Perry in Covent Garden this week to check out the clothes for teenagesons, they quite like the polos and the shoes and middleteen got a Fred Perry hold-all for his birthday. Much to my surprise I found something I liked; the Laurel limited edition, Richard Nicholl collection for spring 2011. It is really pretty and wearable, despite being modelled on a 12 year old in the marketing campaign, which is fine of course, it’s clearly aimed at the young, although I do wonder how many of them can afford a cardigan for £150.
The pointelle cardi is embellished with little pearls and made from very soft silk, viscose and lyocell. I think it’s the prettiest summer cardi I’ve seen for ages, there is also a matching vest and this dainty cap-sleeved top below.
At £150 for the cardi, £100 for the vest top and £125 for the cap sleeved number, it’s a clothes-crush rather than a suggestion to buy, but there’s always the sale.
