Dashing Tweeds x Fred Perry
Last updated on November 15th, 2015 at 12:07 pm
Two quintessentially British menswear brands, Dashing Tweeds and Fred Perry, have come together to create a collection which consists of a flat cap and three beautifully crafted travel bags for your summer travelling.
Dashing Tweeds are a weave based menswear company in London which creates modern urban woven textiles incorporating cycling culture, modern technology and the active urban lifestyle into the long-established heritage of tweed. They’re relatively new to the fashion world but Dashing Tweeds have already done collaborations with Hudson and Billionaire Boys Club.
For Fred Perry, they’ve developed a reflective tweed by weaving 3M reflective yarns with fine quality Merino warps. For the collection, the new weave has been applied to various panels of the bags and hat, with contrasting accents of brushed Blue cotton and Tan leather adding a heritage feel.
Our pick in the collection is the Dashing Tweeds x Fred Perry Rucksack which comes in at £100. To the new tweed, which helps increase visibility while cycling, Fred Perry have added an antique brass-finish metal wear and PVC trims.
We also love the Shoulder Bag for £85. The new weave is joined by hardwearing canvas webbing straps complete with a shoulder pad, a laptop sleeve, and an antique brass-finish metal wear. The Shoulder Bag, like the Rucksack, is dual branded with a Dashing Tweeds woven label and the iconic Laurel Wreath debossed leather tab.
You can check out the four-piece Dashing Tweeds x Fred Perry collection on the Fred Perry Website where you can find the Flat Cap in Navy for £45 and the Tote bag for £95, as well as the Rucksack and Shoulder Bag.
