Amy Winehouse Rumoured to Design Fashion Line for Fred Perry
Yet another rumour out of the celebrity designer mill, this time concerning troubled singer Amy Winehouse and a possible collaboration with designer Fred Perry:
According to the tabloids, the Rehab singer let slip during a festive holiday that she is currently in negotiations with iconic British label Fred Perry and has already started sketching out a few of her ideas.
My jaw dropped at first, too, but could Winehouse actually have something valuable to contribute to the fashion world? A number of people seem to think so: Karl Lagerfeld built upon the Winehouse style for the Paris-Londres Metiers d'Art Chanel collection in 2007; cobbler Jonathan Kelsey crafted the 'Amy' stiletto in her name; and Roberto Cavalli declared the singer a fashion icon due to her unique look. Um, yeah...a 2-foot high beehive is unique, that's for certain.
Let's just hope the Winehouse coiff doesn't become one of the emblematic features of this forthcoming collection.
