We take a first look at the John Smedley for Universal Works collection in this short film behind the scenes at design and production. David Keyte of Universal Works has long been a fan of the British knitwear institution that is Smedley. Aware of the brand’s impressive archive, he approached the company in hopes of combining old with new. “We wanted to show that you can celebrate your heritage but be very contemporary at the same time.” Here we take a look around the John Smedley factory in Derbyshire as the line takes form. Press play and take a closer look in our gallery.
