David Keyte of Universal Works Discusses His Humble Beginnings and Inspirations (Video)

David Keyte of Universal Works recently sat down with the London trade show, Jacket Required, and spoke of his start in the fashion industry. Keyte speaks on his design ethic, which is taking classic items and reintroducing them for a modern audience. Also, he talks about the influence that visiting America in the '80s and spending time with Keith Haring had on him. His inspiration is derived from his love for hip-hop and American culture, mixed with his humble Scottish roots—he describes it as "an old man with a tweed jacket and Adidas trainers." Check out the rest of the video to get a further look at Keyte's life and muses.
