The recently deceased singer had been working on three lines of clothing with designer Fred Perry prior to her unexpected death.
Fred Perry reportedly told Fashionista that the collection is “on hold until we speak with Amy’s family and management.” Random pieces from Winehouse’s previous Spring 2011 collection are available for purchase on ASOS and on eBay.
These lines could still be released, even if they’re incomplete. Fred Perry could stand to make a pretty penny. Winehouse’s music sales on iTunes have increased exponentially since she died. Fans would be sure to flock to stores to buy Winehouse’s cute preppy sweaters and surprisingly adorable rompers.
It seems unlikely that Fred Perry wouldn’t release the collection, especially if another Amy Winehouse album comes out with previously unreleased music. Like Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur before her, Winehouse wouldn’t be the first musician to release an album posthumously.
But it might be in bad taste to release the clothing, especially so soon after Winehouse’s death. If Fred Perry decides to release the collections, I’d definitely want a piece for myself.Tags: Amy Winehouse, ASOS, eBay, Fred Perry, iTunes, Michael Jackson, Tupac Shakur
