    Sir Peter Blake Reworks the Polo for Fred Perry

    Sir Peter Blake collaborates with British street fashion brand Fred Perry to rework the classic polo shirt. As part of the third installment of the brand's Blank Canvas series, Blake put a pop art spin on the shirt. He created three shirt styles, made and printed in England, which will have a numbered run of just 1000.

    Blake used his signature strong colors and graphic symbols on the shirts. Rainbow and Union Jack patches are mixed with screen-printed icons like stars, hearts, and targets. The collaboration holds some nostalgia for Blake who wore the brand in the late 1950s/early 1960s. Of the collaboration he says, "fashion can be art and art can be fashionable."

    The collection is available online now.
