In Nottingham where Universal Works comes from, the onset of Autumn means the travelling fair comes to town, marking the end of summer and the coming of winter. As the weather starts to change it’s time to layer up; a sweater and a jacket in the evening and a coat, hat and scarf when we visit the fair.

The funfair in town creates a mesmerizing atmosphere. In our city the fair is a 700 year old tradition, something we grew up with, our childhood memories of the fair are a crazy mix of noise, smells and lights that were heard and seen from miles around. Maybe the best part was the people, a mix of characters living a bohemian life not without a touch of glamour and yet a tough edge. This feeling, this memory of those characters was the inspiration for a collection which is eclectic yet strong in styling; classic yet modern; dark and sophisticated colours using fabrics from luxury wools to hard working cotton twill.

A collection inspired by tradition but contemporary in design and spirit.
