Created in 2008 in London by David Keyte, Universal Works offers a harmonious collection of timeless and sober men's clothing strongly influenced by the military universe. After more than 20 years of experience in the fashion world with brands such as Paul Smith or Maharishi, David Keyte founded his own brand focusing on quality production, easy to wear and affordable pieces. The brand was especially noticed with its buttonhole jacket and pants, the men's outfits are visually very successful.
Season FW20: The work jacket in the spotlight
The new season obviously remains focused on workwear, including shirts, cotton jackets and pants in a casual and elegant style, all with the use of high quality cotton and wool, to hell with polyester. There are striking pieces such as the belted jacket inspired by kimonos that will enhance your fall outfits. This new line also stands out for its impeccable finishes, its well-controlled cuts and its sober colors. No doubt that you will be seduced by the wool buttoned closure jacket that stands out with its beautiful tile patterns. A piece that perfectly represents the retro inspirations of the label.
Renowned for its know-how, the brand produces a large part of its collections in small English factories, and if possible not far from London to boost the local economy. In its collections mixing English classics and more modern pieces, workwear is often reinterpreted in a contemporary style and accessorized to give it a more chic look. Universal Works produces its closure jacket in a variety of ways, there is something for every taste, from hooded zipped jackets to printed jackets, belted jackets to buttonhole jackets, the choice of clothing is insane, especially since there are so many easy-to-wear pieces. We are no longer in the complexity that we could observe the designer at Maharishi. Today, he returns to the essential and favors the functional aspect. However, he can be extravagant in decorating his creations with unexpected finishes, as shown in the printed jacket.
