In time for the holidays, Fred Perry has unveiled a brand-new dual-branded record player created in collaboration with turntable pioneers Pro-Ject.
The collaboration honors Fred Perry’s heritage with three cutting-edge turntables based on the brand’s iconic colorways: Marron/White/Ice, White/Ice/Navy, and Black/Champagne.
The Fred Perry-branded device, meticulously crafted, is a hybrid of two of Pro-most Ject’s popular turntables: the Essential and the Debut. The record player, emblazoned with Fredy Perry’s 30 Leaf Laurel Wreath motif, is completely unique to the fashion label.
Following its founding in 1952 by the brand’s namesake, triple Wimbledon champion Fred Perry, the brand quickly rose to prominence and high demand, thanks to the sports star’s signature “Fred Perry fit” polo shirt, which now comes in the aforementioned tones.
Pro-Ject, on the other hand, was founded much later by analog music enthusiast Heinz Lichtenegger in 1991, after compact disc players had been introduced and vinyl had been declared dead.
To put it simply, Fred Perry’s original Pro-Ject turntable is as sleek as its decades-old clothing designs — but it truly shines for its cutting-edge technology. The Record Deck is now available for £450 GBP on the brand’s website.
