Scottish designer Jonathan Saunders is collaborating with cult brand Lyle & Scott on a new knitwear line to celebrate their 140th anniversary this year. Speaking on working with the heritage company, Jonathan commented that he believes the brand has a rich history, including some memorable looks from the 90s music scene: “Lyle & Scott always suggested a reference to the indie scene – think [The Stone Roses frontman] Ian Brown and [Blur rocker] Damon Albarn, and of course I wore it too. It’s such an iconic Scottish brand, which was something I wanted to channel when creating the collection. To me, Scotland signifies industry, work ethic and innovation – I’m clearly patriotic!"

Saunders thinks his knitwear designs for Lyle & Scott won't be as preppy as the company's usual image and he thinks it's suited to an edgier customer: “I definitely don’t see this collection being worn in a preppy way with rolled-up chinos. It’s a collection that can be worn with baggy jeans – the customer wearing it would be quite cool and bold, whilst remaining traditional.”

Working with such a historical brand was very new to the designer but Jonathan has commented that he wanted to maintain his own look while also keeping what the company is all about intact for his pieces: “It’s important to keep integrity to the brand I am collaborating with, while bringing in my own designs and experience. It’s especially important when I’m working with a brand with such a strong identity like Lyle & Scott.”
