Lingua Franca and The Beatles/Apple Corps Ltd have collaborated on their first ever collection of a limited edition series of cashmere sweaters for adults and children, embroidered with six iconic song titles from The Beatles’ beloved discography including “Here Comes The Sun,” “Let It Be,” “All You Need Is Love,” “Ob La Di Ob La Da,” and “Honey Pie.”
Joe Marziotto, Vice President, Branding & Licensing at Thread Shop said, “Apple Corps Ltd is particularly sensitive to supporting brands with ethical sourcing and production practices and we look forward to a very successful partnership with Lingua Franca.”
This collaboration with The Beatles came about in celebration of the upcoming three-part documentary series, The Beatles: Get Back, coming to Disney+ on November 25 of this year. The deal was brokered by Sony’s Thread Shop, The Beatles’ North America licensing agent.
Each style in the collection is made from 100% sustainably sourced cashmere and hand-embroidered by Lingua Franca’s embroidery team in NYC. Available in bright, fun colors, the assortment includes an array of styles (V-Neck, Crewneck, Cardigan, and Children’s Crewneck) and a range of inclusive sizes (XS-3X and 2T-10/12). The luxury knits have arrived just in time for the holiday season.
The Beatles: Get Back is an intimate capsule for fanatics of the beloved British band as much as it is an insightful treat for more casual listeners. The series documents the 1969 story of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr in the midst of planning their first live show in more than two years: a rooftop concert on London’s Savile Row. For the first time, The Beatles’ final performance together as a group will be made available in its entirety.
The docuseries was made possible through the restoration of over 150 hours of unheard audio and more than 60 hours of footage shot by Michael Lindsay-Hogg in January 1969. The Beatles: Get Back carries with it an aura of exclusivity, as Jackson is the only person to gain access to the private film archives where this footage was held for more than 50 years.
