Luxury cashmere sweater specialist, Lingua Franca tunes up with The Beatles

Lingua Franca – the luxury cashmere sweater specialist – has collaborated with The Beatles and Apple Corps on a limited edition series of sweaters embroidered with six iconic song titles from the band.

Song titles used include Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Honey Pie, Here Comes the Sun, Let It Be and All You Need is Love.

Each style in the collection is made from 100% sustainably sourced cashmere and hand-embroidered by Lingua Franca’s team in New York.

Styles include v-neck, crewneck, cardigan and children’s crewneck.

The collaboration lands ahead of the upcoming three-part documentary series, The Beatles: Get Back, which is due to begin airing on Disney+ from 25 November.

The deal was brokered by Sony’s Thread Shop, the North American licensing agent for The Beatles.

“Apple Corps is particularly sensitive to supporting brands with ethical sourcing and production practices and we look forward to a very successful partnership with Lingua Franca,” commented Joe Marziotto, vp branding and licensing at Thread Shop.
