Universal Works x Bundobust x HIP

Here at Bundobust we have always had a fantastic relationship with HIP. We’ve grown up with HIP in Leeds as fellow small independent businesses and the crew at HIP have supported Bundo since day dot. Matt and Robin at HIP first turned our co-owners Marko and Mayur onto Universal Works clobber back in the day and they’ve been getting togged up in Universal Works via HIP ever since. In early 2020 we were chatting about doing something collaborative together, and using Universal Works as a canvas to create a Bundo staff uniform. As the concept grew we decided to create an exclusive to HIP collection (outside of the uniform) using famous Bundo graphics and iconic Universal Works silhouettes from the last decade.

Teamwork makes the dream work

HIP has always had a strong relationship with Universal Works. They’ve stocked each of UW’s collections right from the very first, supporting David Keyte’s vision of military inspired clothing with a contemporary twist for the last 12 years.

The design of the collection is based around combining the iconic Bundobust tiger and classic Universal Works silhouettes and materials: heavyweight sweatshirts, military trousers, and chore jackets in denim and heavy cotton canvas. The overall mantra of the collection is “future friendship”; having this to mark the start of something we can build on in the future together.

Together we launched the collaboration at Bundobust Leeds on Thursday 11th November 2021.

You can now check the collection out online via HIP and Universal Works.
