Fred Perry is celebrating their 60 years anniversary since its inception in 1952, and even though 2012 is over it continues to celebrate its anniversary into 2013. Originator of the classic tennis shirt, the brand has created a reproduction of the original 1952 model for invited brands and artists to use as a canvas to display their unique designs and greetings. Among the invited were Stussy, Eko Nugroho, Colette, Wood Wood, Medicom Toy, Anton Wirjono, Geoff Mcfetridge, and more.

The shirts will be on display as an installation at Dover Street Market London starting January 26, then making stops worldwide at DSM Ginza and I.T. Beijing Market. The only way to purchase these special pieces will be through auction later this year, and all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Check out the rest of the shirts on the Fred Perry website.

Anton Wirjono has been dubbed as one of the forefathers of Indonesiaʼs music scene and urban street culture. He is a seasoned disc jockey, music producer and entrepreneur who also runs a fashion store, a diner and café, and an events agency. He has won several awards including Ravelexʼs House DJ of the Year 2005, Paranoia’s Milestone award in 2007 and Redmaʼs Lifetime Achievement award in 2008. Wijorno also runs Future10 Productions, an events production agency, which was awarded Redmaʼs Best promoter/ Event Organiser in 2007

Eko Nugroho is one of the most acclaimed members of the current generation of Indonesian contemporary artists. He is deeply engaged with the culture of his time and is committed to making socio-political commentary in his work. His works are grounded in both local traditions and global popular culture. In particular, he has cited the influence of traditional batik and embroidery styles, alongside a powerful inspiration gained from contemporary street art, graffiti and comics.
