Lyle & Scott Partners With David Keyte

The British knitwear label said that the capsule line will be made up of knitwear, polo shirts, flannel shirts and woolen accessories.

NEW TEAM: Alongside its recently unveiled collaboration with Jonathan Saunders, British knitwear label Lyle & Scott has another partnership set to launch for fall.

The heritage men’s label is partnering with David Keyte, the founder of Universal Works, a London-based men’s label that spotlights rugged, workwear-inspired pieces, to create an 11-piece capsule collection. Lyle & Scott said that the capsule line will be made up of knitwear, polo shirts, flannel shirts and woolen accessories, and noted that Keyte has taken inspiration for the collection from the Lyle & Scott designs he wore as a youth in the late Seventies and early Eighties.
