A sportswear icon celebrates its 60th anniversary this year – the Fred Perry polo shirt. In recognition of the milestone, the classic sportswear brand have teamed up with sixty of the world’s best designers and artists to customize the wreath-emlazoned shirt as they see fit, with proceeds from the shirts to be donated to the Amy Winehouse Trust. Participants include names such as Raf Simons, Neville Brody, Damon Albarn, The Specials and Karen Walker (a preview of who’s entry can be seen above). The first selection of shirts will be displayed in collaboration with Dover Street Market from January 26, with the auction planned for later this year. (via The News)
