Clothing label Fred Perry will release the final collection of clothes and accessories they designed with Amy Winehouse.

With speculation as to whether or not the range would ever see the light of day, the company explained its decision to move forward with the release, saying:

After much consideration and with the blessing of Amy's family, Fred Perry has decided to release the AW11 range and wholesale the SS12 Amy Winehouse for Fred Perry Collection



You can see the collection, which includes dresses, belts and bags, over at the official Fred Perry site.


With the singer's passing, the fashion house had said that it required her family's permission to release the line of clothing. Her father Mitch Winehouse said:

When Fred Perry came to us to ask what we would like to do with the new collection, it was natural to continue. Amy loved working on both collections and would want them to be made available.



Royalties and fees for the collection will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, with Fred Perry set to make an annual contribution to the charity.

Earlier today, it was suggested that Winehouse's ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil would write a 'tell-all' book about the singer.
