Gorillaz announce Fred Perry collaboration

The group have teamed up with the designer for their take on the classic M3 and M12 shirts

Gorillaz have collaborated with Fred Perry on a new campaign.

The animated band led by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, who recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of their self-titled debut LP, have sported their favourite shirts from the iconic range as part of a Gorillaz takeover.

The group's four members — 2-D, Murdoc, Noodle and Russel Hobbs —  have selected either the M3 or M12 model of The Fred Perry Shirt, in colours ranging from Maroon, Tartan Green, Brighton Blue and French Navy.

“My first Fred Perry shirt wasn’t actually mine, it belonged to Arthur Ashe," Hobbs says on the Fred Perry website. "Like a cross between Barack Obama and Denzel Washingtonhe was an artist... he had style, he had an afro, he wore a pair of tiny shorts - and, of course, the classic Fred Perry tennis shirt..."
