After working together last year, Universal Works and The Pilgrm have reunited for another collaborative collection. The new release sees the British brand and London-based hotel come together for a capsule produced using unused fabrics that have been upcycled and repurposed.

Due to the materials used, each piece is slightly unique. Throughout the capsule, signature Universal Works silhouettes are updated, with a focus on a relaxed fit and items designed for enjoying a laid-back stay in a hotel such as The Pilgrm.

Unveiling the collection, Universal Works co-founder David Keyte said:

“When we started Universal Works, the fabrics we were using for the first two years were the roll-ends, the leftovers at the factories from other brands. What we’re doing here is making products from unwanted, unloved fabrics. For the past 30 years, I’ve seen that almost every factory has a storeroom full of amazing quality cloths in small quantities; not enough to make a collection or a sales channel. When I see it, I can almost hear it saying ‘I’m lovely – why doesn’t anyone use me?’. We’re trying to get back to that. It’s not about numbers, it’s limited, which is a nice thing. This is really about us both making the right decisions in business. Making conscious choices about longevity.”

The full The Pilgrm x Universal Works collection is available now at The Pilgrm hotel and via the Universal Works web store.
