Fred Perry releases final Winehouse collection

Pieces from the last of Amy Winehouse's collection for Fred Perry have been released today.

The British fashion brand has debuted the posthumous designs to coincide with the release of her album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures.

The collection became available exclusively at this morning.

The profits from sales on the clothing line will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. There will also be a "seasonal" donation to the charity.

A spokesperson for Fred Perry said the pieces reflect "Amy's love of Fifties Americana and Art Deco Miami, the collection features an exclusive print scattered with cadillacs, juke boxes and cat's eye sunglasses in a palette of pink mist, pale blue and black."

Prices range from £30 to £195.

Amy's collaboration with the popular clothing brand began last year with an Autumn 2010 collection. She had already put out two successful clothing collections for the company.

Richard Martin, Fred Perry's marketing director, said last March that the late singer's style was perfect for their image.

"Amy has a unique sense of style that reflects the brand's own historical reference points," he told WWD. "Amy gave crucial input on proportion, colour and fit. The range clearly has Amy's handwriting."
