Waves swell against a creaking boat as Callum O’Neill recounts the unfortunate tale of a young man lost at sea in the latest Lyle & Scott film, The Fairest Isle of All. A slow tick beats ominously as the young man, “known by damp bright colours,” grips the handrail against the bobbing tide. O’Neill warns, “Man overboard!” as the man’s green fairisle knit is pulled down through the ocean amongst a plume of bubbles, the embroidered Golden Eagle soaring through the sea.
Styled by Ellie Grace Cumming and directed by Alabama duo Pedro de la Fuente and James Worsley, the film is the brand's second collaboration with the directors created to showcase the rich heritage of the label.
