The word ‘Universal’ couldn’t be more relevant to us right now for obvious reasons. It signifies a coming together, standing shoulder-to-shoulder with one another and the importance of the mantra ‘no borders, no nations, just people’.
As part of the latest SS21 collection, we have partnered with long-standing friends and cool Portuguese label La Paz, a brand with shared values of time-honoured designs combined with ‘Made In Portugal’ quality across jackets, jerseys and soft knits.
The capsule collection will feature two sweats and two T-shirts in Ecru on Navy and vice versa, carrying the poignant message ‘Peace, Love, Sea – Universal Works/La Paz Together’ underlining the Atlantic mood of La Paz and their own vision of a borderless united community.
“This latest collaboration is part of that truly global mix – working with Andre and Jose, who I know share the same approach to life and work,” says Universal Works co-founder David Keyte. “I am not big on “seasonal themes” and prefer a slower, more considered approach, keeping to the U.W routes, so this tightly curated coming-together is a perfect combination for both parties.”
Here we are, Universal Works x LA PAZ, together in this collaboration that aims to celebrate friendship and all the good things in life.

We met David back in 2012 in London and we have been friends since then. From that day on, we managed to help each other many times along the way, to travel the world together, and now we are also neighbours here in Porto. Together with the rest of the team, we sat around the table many, many times, with a lot of wine and laughs in between. As we all know, sharing is caring, and so all this PEACE, LOVE and the SEA is for you guys. Have fun!”
The collection will be available on Thursday 25th March from stockists globally and online from LA PAZwww.lapaz.pt
