Nottingham-based menswear label Universal Works has opened the doors to its limited pop-up store within the prestigious Merci Paris concept store.

The pop-up — which will show throughout Paris Menswear Fashion Week until June 27 — brings together one-off pieces made from unique Kantha textiles, which are made entirely from carefully handpicked vintage saris, highlighting a first-class recycling project.

Alongside a selection of Universal Works’ core fabrics, the pop-up also showcases some of the brand’s most iconic pieces, like the Baker Jacket and Japanese-inspired Kyoto Jacket.

“Whether we like it or not, the clothes we wear send out a message to the world. It’s an unspoken language of all the things we like and the attitudes we portray. So this is a truly unique and original moment to show Paris what Universal Works is about,” explains David Keyte, Universal Work’s co-founder and designer.

“I’ve been collecting vintage textiles for years, on my trips to India, and always loved the possibility of re-using these incredible old pieces of fabric and breathing life into them by making something totally new”.

The Universal Works x Merci Paris pop-up will be showing until June 27.
