For day one of London Collections Men Universal works took us to the fairground! The founder, David Keyte is inspired by the bohemian punk lifestyle of a travelling fair.

David spoke nostalgically about his inspiration for the collection and how in his home city of Nottingham the traveling fair came in the fall and spoke of the winter coming. The first need for sweaters and coats, inspired by his childhood memories and the guys who were an eclectic mix of the glamorous and exotic yet really tough!

For David it’s about the mix, sportswear with Savile Row, streetwear with military or luxury fabrics in blue collar styling.
