Last week at London Collections: Men, British brand Universal Works presented a preview of their SS14 collection in the Hospital Club showspace with a bit of a unique twist.
Titled ‘Also Available In Navy’ the show saw Universal Works present a flip on traditional conventions of menswear with an entirely pink collection. Those familiar with UW will know that usually blues and greys make up the majority of their collections, so this presentation is quite clearly a bold step in a new direction. Featuring everything from jackets, shirts and trousers to headwear and accessories, Universal Works have everything covered in a distinctly ‘Pink Panther’ shade, but don’t worry, as the title suggests, it’s ‘also available in navy’.
It’s not often we talk about a collection this far in advance of its actual release, but this was worth making the exception. The full SS14 collection will be available early next year and combines the brand’s workwear inspirations with a Summer holiday theme, bringing in washed blazers, slim trousers, printed floral shirts and lightweight knitwear.
