About Raf Simons x Fred Perry.

Raf Simons originally graduated in Industrial Design and Furniture Design in 1991, going on to work as a furniture designer for various galleries. Encouraged by Linda Loppa, head of the fashion department at the Antwerp Royal Academy, the self-taught Belgian designer launched the Raf Simons label, which began as a youth culture line, in 1995. Today, innovation, modernity and individuality remain core tenets of his menswear line, and the creative fusion of the arts the Raf Simons brand is known for — music, performance and art has always played a substantial role in the designer's creative process — is an approach he has replicated at the different houses he has headed up. In 2008, two flagship Raf Simons standalone stores opened in Tokyo and Osaka, Japan, in collaboration with the artists Sterling Ruby and Roger Hiorns. Since then, Simons has created collaborative collections with Fred Perry, Asics, and Adidas.

Fred Perry was an English tennis champion, who was the first and only British tennis player to win all four major open championships. He won Wimbledon for three consecutive years between 1933-36. He was the last British player to win Wimbledon until Andy Murray won 77 years later in 2013. Fred Perry also won the world table tennis championship in 1929. In the 1940s, Fred Perry was approached by Tibby Wegner to use his name in a new clothing label. Initially focused on a simple tennis shirt, the Fred Perry clothing label went on to become one of the world’s leading fashion labels. It was an inspired choice as Perry cut an image of a cool sports superstar, with a slightly rebellious attitude which appealed to the British teenagers of the 50s, 60s and 70s.
