Following its outdoor-ready Fall/Winter 2022 collection revealed earlier this summer, Nottingham-based brand Universal Works taps multifaceted imprint HHV Berlin for an international collaboration demonstrating both brands’ borderless personalities.

The four-piece capsule collection merges its European identity through country trademarks, including British workwear staples, Harris Tweed, and German Moleskin. Dubbed “Traditional Fabric, International Garments. Traditional Beat, International Artist,” the range sees Universal Works’ distinguishable Cabin Jacket and Pleated Track Pant reimagined through a black and white tweed pattern, custom gradient-style button closures, and mismatched patches that boast restored energy.

The second and final colorway features a moleskin construction in a navy design with contrasting patchwork detailing in a lighter blue tone.

Speaking on the collection, Universal Works co-founder David Keyte states:

“We wanted to really mix up some very British things and very German things and express our common interests. HHV chose a classic Harris Tweed from Scotland and we added a real hard-wearing workwear fabric from a classic German mill.

We developed this in two of our favourite relaxed shapes, the Cabin Jacket and Pleated Track Pant, creating a kind of “repaired” long-time loved feel with self-patches. We wanted to make a kind of International feeling garment.”

The Universal Works X HHV Berlin capsule collection is available now via the HHV and Universal Works websites. The collection is also available in-store at HHV’s Berlin shop.
