Raf Simons With Fred Perry: Reunited And It Feels So Good



fred-perry-300When your fave frozen-yogurt flavor disappears from the gleaming row of self-serve dispensers, then returns after what feels like tortuous eons, you stock up (who knows when they’ll pull this stunt again?) — and celebrate. Well, this fashion reintroduction is a little like that, except 100 times more rad.

After two long years, Raf Simons and Fred Perry are joining forces once again, just in time for spring '13. Be one of the first to peruse the fresh collab, featuring the classic polo in an array of not-so-country-club-friendly prints, at the launch party. Then, if you’re not tuckered out from that retail session, spend the following afternoon ping-ponging it up with table-tennis pros from SPiN at an in-store tourney. If you’ve been patiently waiting for the duo’s return, then take the weekend to revel in this most holy reunion! And, in the meantime, don't miss this video for a peek at the entire collection in action.
