The Fred Perry and Thames collaboration for the Spring/Summer 2018 season features classic silhouettes and striped detailing in a preppy fashion collection. Titled 'Fifth Wheel,' the capsule consists of 13 original pieces that have been inspired by the British labels' archives. From functional tennis skirts and dresses to sun-shielding visors and fitted bomber jackets, the Spring/Summer 2018 collection embraces the design cues of tennis as a culture.

Thames founder Blondey McCoy states that he "was bored of skating in t-shirt" and that is why he turned to the classic Fred Perry short-sleeves—an iconic silhouette that transcended the tennis court and has established itself in other spheres of society.

The preppy fashion collection boasts the type of youthful vibe in accordance with sport and after-school hang-outs in bowling alleys or the arcade.
