Though Amy Winehouse has passed away, the singer’s fashion will live on. The Back to Black songstress collaborated with British design company, Fred Perry, on two collections (Fall 2010 and Spring 2011). And in a recent interview Amy let it slip that three more Fred Perry x Amy Winehouse collections had been created, which would see the line through to Autumn/Winter 2012.
But, the label is having a hard time deciding whether they should release the newest collections following the singer’s death. “Everything is on hold until we speak with Amy’s family and management,” the company said.
The collaboration was launched in October 2010 with Amy modeling the ’50s-inspired collection of pencil skirts, capri pants and her signature polo shirt. The design company described the look as “classic Fred Perry pieces given a fresh twist with Amy’s attitude and style.”
In the days since Winehouse’s death on Saturday July 23rd, the collaboration has sold out completely on the Fred Perry website and only a few items of the Fall 2010 line remain for sale on the Asos site. The late singer’s album sales have also skyrocketed. An estimated 50,000 Winehouse records have been sold this week alone. – Regan Reid
