Fred Perry announce latest Amy Winehouse collection
Since Amy Winehouse died three weeks ago, her fans have become ever more obsessed with buying her work. Her two albums are sitting at the top of the charts, and now Fred Perry have revealed that they will release her latest collection for the sportswear brand. Before you shake your heads muttering 'another company cashing in', profits will go towards the foundation that Any Winehouse's father Mitch is establishing to help combat drug addiction.
According to The Daily Mail, Fred Perry announced, 'After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy's family we have decided to release the aw11 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry collection. Amy was passionate about the collaboration before she died last month. Amy was passionate and dedicated to the collaboration and her signature style is clearly stamped across each piece. In such circumstances the usual royalties and feels from the collection will be donated to the soon to be established Amy Winehouse foundation.'
The collection will be released next month, and a charity single recorded with Tony Bennett will also hit the shops soon, with profits going to the Foundation.
