UNIVERSAL WORKS AW16

London Collections Men

David Keyte – Universal Works’ designer – and his team introduced a AW16 collection in a fun fair inspired set, at LC:M. With David’s life work reading like a description of the companies DNA, Universal Works is about the mixing of ideas; understanding heritage and context implied by contemporary needs and aesthetics. “The mixing of ideas”: is exactly the main idea of that collection. Streetwear stamped clothes mixed with military and Saville Row’s traditional bespoke suits mixed with sportswear. The beanies, the short cuts of the trousers or simply pant hems and the 70’s inspired turtleneck under the print shirt added a blue-collar style to the collection.   The show took place in a  very cool atmosphere where the show took place. Not to mention more than the popcorn cooked during the presentation, the posters and the model who was holding a goldfish in a bags. Universal Works’ man of the next winter is a traveller, always moving, from large cities to small rural communities.  His thirst for discovery, his curiosity and his need to share with other culture are reflected in his bohemian allure. The collection marks the end of the summer and the upcoming approach of the winter. The colors (dark and sophisticated), the wools and cotton used were the key factors.
