Perry Ellis has been “life ready” since 1976. The clothing brand was created with a vision to make fashion fun with patterns, pops of color, new shapes, and never-before-seen styles. Designer, Perry Ellis was forward-thinking and FRESH and all of his collections truly embody that.
The Perry Ellis brand has evolved and changed with the times and they recently relaunched their OG Perry Ellis America collection. The capsule is made up of 12 pieces and is now available in extremely limited quantities- 200 pieces. The collection first debuted in 1984 and I had the pleasure of DJing the relaunch party, it was a blast. I am obsessed with my navy blue and yellow rugby.
As a designer, Ellis focused heavily on innovation. He wanted to break down the walls of fashion and make clothes designed with REAL LIFE in mind. The brand has earned itself many accolades including the Coty Award in 1979 and he won CFDA Designer of the Year in 1982. In 1984 he became the head of the CFDA.
My favorite Perry Ellis looks are old classics which were rocked on the runway by some of our favorite models like Tyra Banks and Naomi Cambell. Check out some of my favorite classic throwback Perry Ellis looks below.
