The late 1970s brought in a new kind of sportswear. Contrasting colours in man-made fibres changed the way sport looked forever, and the Sports Authentic collection reimagines original Fred Perry pieces in this unmistakable era. It was these styles than encouraged the evolution of sportswear as streetwear and the track jacket took centre stage when Britpop embraced its retro styling in the ‘90s. Made from a tricot fabric that replicates an original from FP archive, it features all the classic details: front pockets, funnel neck and the white enamel-coated zip of the original: a reference to the cash-strapped time of the ‘70s, when zips and branding were generic to all colours.
