Amy Winehouse’s designs for label Fred Perry could be released posthumously.

The British streetwear company – famed for their iconic polo shirts, synonymous with teenagers of the 60s and 70s and the early Skinhead moment – had collaborated with the singer, who died suddenly on Saturday (23.07.11), on two successful collections and say they have three in the Fred Perry x Amy Winehouse range which could potentially be released.

Whether the garments will be made and sold, however, has yet to be decided, as the brand is planning to approach her family for input.

A spokesperson for the brand said: “Everything is on hold until we speak with Amy’s family and management.”

Amy was said to have been fully involved with the design of her collections, the first of which was a 50s inspired set which included twinsets, gingham, pencil skirts and capri pants in October 2010.

She then collaborated on a follow up Spring/Summer collection which was Hawaiian-inspired and launched in March this year.

Richard Martin, a marketing manager from Fred Perry, told Harper’s Bazaar Amy was a “delight” to work with.

He said: “Bright, passionate, and dedicated, with strong ideas of exactly what it was that she wanted from the range. Detailing, fabrics-she was all over it.”

The three collections Amy designed for Fred Perry could are enough for the label to release through until late next year.
