What to wear Now: Lyle & Scott x Lovers FC Capsule Collection

Lyle & Scott are thrilled to announce the second drop of their ‘Memories are Made’ collaboration with Lovers FC​. Following the success of the first sold-out February collection, the latest installment between the Scottish heritage brand and English football collective offers a unisex knitwear collection celebrating some of football’s most iconic team shirts.

Describing his partnership with Lyle & Scott, Lovers FC founder ​Neal Heard explains he was “​one of the original 80’s terrace dwellers, the Football Casuals, and we were mad on our Lyle and Scott knitwear; so when I decided to put my idea of turning classic kits into knitwear I thought, why not approach the best? True to their reputation, L&S brought their own exacting standards and attention to details to the collection.”

The second collaboration forays into jumpers and now polo shirts, consisting of 10 pieces re-imagining designs from legendary teams including Ajax, Juventus ​and ​Belgium​. With jumpers blending lambswool with nylon and knitted polos formed from cotton, Neal states the colourful collection gives a ​“much thinner gauge of knit, which gives that authentic football shirt feel”.

The partnership taps ​This Fan Gir​l founder ​Amy Drucquer for their campaign, alongside two other members of the female-led football community. Speaking of TFG’s involvement, Amy notes “​What really drew us to this collection was the way it’s rewritten the rules of football – who’s created kits in knitwear before? We loved how these classic designs were reformatted to create something playful and rebellious.”

The second Lyle & Scott x Lovers FC collaboration drops on ​Monday November 9th, 2020 and is available to purchase from ​www.lyleandscott.com​. Prices range from £80 – £100 with limited availability of this collection.
