Fred Perry Drop More Exclusive Military Camo Pieces With Arktis For 2018
The next installment of the Fred Perry x Arktis collaboration features reworked classics & splinter style camouflage.
Subcultures have continued to play a key role when it comes to military style. Take the punk scene for example, where the likes of Ian Curtis could be seen wearing a military parka with ‘Hate’ written on the back around the underground clubs of Manchester in the late 70s. Then there’s the camo element, a key pattern of the streetwear scene since the early 90s, when combined with the likes of Fred Perry & Arktis the end result is very special.
Following on from last years first parka collaboration, the Fred Perry x Arktis partnership now comes back into fruition for September 2018 with a range of apparel, headwear, trainers and bags. The collection utilises an original Arktis camouflage from their archives, a UK based company who have been knocking out some of the toughest military gear for the last 30 years. The exclusive splinter-style camouflage print has previously been used by the European military, coming available in a classic woodland style camo and and a blue/grey/black airforce camo.
Outerwear includes the Stockport jacket which takes on the classic parka style, made from a poly/cotton twill fabric with an added polar fleece lining as well as the Brentham jacket in a classic bomber style. Other apparel includes sweatshirts, pique polo shirts and tees all kitted out in the exclusive splinter camo print. Finally the exclusive drop also includes the Hughes Mid trainer, Laurel Wreath caps and a cross body bag.
