We can still remember it now. Curled up on the sofa, desperately trying to grab as many pillows as we could get our hands on to hide behind, only peeping through the cracks in our fingers to catch a glimpse and quickly back again. This of course was our first 1975 classic Jaws experience and…well… we loved it!

Every once in a while a film comes along that totally changes the game, whether it’s with ultra cool new revolutionary special effects, amazing acting performances, or perhaps all out shocking storylines we’ll never forget. These films quickly go down in history and earn themselves the title of a classic or perhaps a retro movie icon, Jaws is certainly one of these films!

Directed by movie legend Steven Spielberg, Jaws (based on the books) follows the story of a small island community called Amity which quickly becomes the hunting ground of a huuge (no really…huge!) Great White Shark. After some odd goings on and an attack on a local boy, the mother of the latest victim put a large bounty on the sea beast’s head which soon sends would-be shark hunters on the case to catch their prize, but this is only the start of the Sharks feeding frenzy….
.
Always wanting to have a little nosy into some of our favourite films, we’ve been doing a little swimming around the depths of the internet and have discovered some simply amazing behind the scenes shots of the great beast itself and of course the iconic cast and crew. Take a peep at some of our favourite snaps and perhaps put some of those deep blue sea fears to bed :)

Cool huh! Doesn’t seem so scary after all now :)

Hello internet travelers!

Here at Truffle Towers we love pretty much anything old school! Whether it be classic characters, films, gadgets and what not, nothing beats the first game console you had, the first phone you could call your own or even that special toy you had growing up that will always have a place in your hearts somewhere.

Alas! Don’t let this fool you though, we’re still as techie and geeky as they come and love nothing more than getting stuck into the latest gizmos and TV shows….but what happens when these two worlds collide?

Well! With the help of his trusty smart phone, French photographer François Dourlen has done just this and is able to blend the real world with the scripted one by superimposing television and film characters into his surroundings. Know when we mean? Take a peep below for some of our favourite….

So there you have them everyone! What do you think? Fancy giving some of these a go for yourself? Grab you phone and camera and get snapping! We sure will :)

xoxo



For the honor of Greyskull! Just when you thought our warehouse shelves couldn’t possibly hold any more awesome retro designs, we’ve only gone and packed in even more leaving the rafters fit to burst with some exciting new designs!

This time we’ve been inspired by the amazing retro hero…She-Ra!

Lovingly known as He-Man’s hot twin sister (maybe by the guys here at TruffleShuffle anyways), She-Ra has become one of the most iconic cartoon heroes of a generation. Not only was she possibly one of the most powerful women ever, she lead the Great Rebellion in the hope of freeing their homeworld of Etheria from the tyrannical rule of Hordak, Evil Horde, and later on Skeletor.

With such an all round amazing and classic character, we’re gone all out with our latest designs.

Featuring the Princess herself, this also comes complete with a distressed gold foil embellished print for some extra vintage style and retro points for a great original tee feel like it was plucked straight out of the 80s.

Not wanting to leave anyone out the of action, we’ve put our design on a ladies rolled sleeve tshirt, a men’s style t-shirt and of course a vest for the summer months. Take a peep….

She-Ra T-Shirts

One of our favourite Superhero T-Shirt designs yet, these are the perfect way to show your love for this true icon from only £19.99.
What do you think peeps?

Can you believe it! The film that gave us some of the most classic 90s quotes, clothing, names and of course moments turns 19 years old TODAY!

As hard….or perhaps just scary as it is to think, this 90s retro icon was released back in 1995 in the US of A which to us seems like just a few years ago, turns out to be nearly passing the two decades ago mark! EEEP!

So we all know far too much to be healthy about this classic film, but do you know where some of this amazing cast are today?

We’ll, in fairness we sure didn’t, so we decided to do a little digging and share with you all what we found during out exploration.

Sit back, relax and take a look at our Clueless….

Where are they now?
.
Alicia Silverstone – Cher
After international stardom and cult fame, Alicia went on to star in Batman & Robin as Batgirl in 1997. She has also appeared in Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed and has done a number of voice work. She has also hit Broadway along with Kathleen Turner and Jason Biggs in The Graduate and more recently in Time Stands Still. She now lives in LA and has a little boy called Bear Blu Jarecki.
.
Stacey Dash – Dee
After Clueless fame, Stacey went on to feature in Clueless the TV show which ran for three seasons, as well as films like View from the Top, Dysfunctional Friends, House Arrest, and upcoming flick Patient Killer. During her life she’s been married three times, has two kids and briefly dated Jamie Foxx. At age 40 (how??), Stacey also posed nude in the August 2006 issue of Playboy. Wowzers!
.
Brittany Murphy
Playing the new girl on the scene, Tai is quickly taken under Cher and Dionne’s wing as they try to reinvent her from a rough-around-the-edges tomboy into the hot new thing.
Brittany garnered tremendous attention for her role in “Girl Interrupted” with Academy Award winner Angelina Jolie, and her fame quickly skyrocketed following her, later starring in films such as Sin City, 8 Mile, Spun, Just Married, animated film Happy Feet, and also voice work on King of The Hill.

Tragically, in December 2009, Brittany passed away aged just 32. She is sadly missed by everyone here at TruffleShuffle and is certainly one of our all time favourite talents and played a big part in some of our top films. Very sad loss for all. RIP.
.
Paul Rudd – Josh
Paul is still as handsome as ever. Perhaps the most successful “Clueless” grad, he’s brought his comedy talent to flicks like “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy,” (and the second one!) “Knocked Up,” “The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, “I Love You, Man” and”Role Models”. He’s been married to Julie Yaeger since 2003, and they have have two kids, son Jack and daughter Darby. LEGEND!
.
Donald Faison – Murray
After starring on the “Clueless” TV show, Donald snagged the role of Turk on TV hit Scrubs where he met his BFF Zach Braff. It was actually at Zach’s house that Donald wed his girlfriend of six years, CaCee Cobb, on Dec. 15, 2012.  Donald has five kids, including his and CaCee’s son, Rocco, who was born on Aug. 15, 2013. In July, he reunited with his Clueless girlfriend, Stacey Dash, on his TV Land series “The Exes.” He has also starred in some pretty big budget flicks like Skyline and Kick-Ass 2. What a dude.
.
Elisa Donovan – Amber
After starring on the Clueless spin-off show, Elisa then joined the cast of “Sabrina, the Teenage Witch” for three seasons as Morgan. She also starred in a number of TV movies, like “The Dog Who Saved Christmas.” Elisa voiced the audio book version of Sheryl Sandberg’s “Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead.”.  She lives in San Francisco with her husband of two years, Charlie Bigelow, and their daughter Scarlett.
.
Jeremy Sisto – Elton
While filming Clueless, Jeremy was married to Marisa Ryan, whom he later divorced in 2002. In October 2009, he wed Addie Lane, with whom he has two kids: daughter Charlie Ballerina and son Bastian Kick. When he’s not thinking up weird names for his kids, Jeremy stars on ABC’s “Suburgatory,” which Alicia Silverstone guest starred on. He has also played Billy Chenowith on  “Six Feet Under” and Det. Cyrus Lupo on “Law & Order.” Nice!
.
Breckin Meyer – Travis
Breckin has a daughter, Caitlin Willow, with “Can’t Hardly Wait” writer-director Deborah Kaplan. The couple married in October 2001, but separated in 2012. Breckin is quite accomplished on-screen and off: Not only does he star on TNT’s “Franklin and Bash,” but he created TBS show “Men at Work” and was nominated for an Emmy for his  writing on “Robot Chicken: Star Wars.” Not bad for a former loadie! He also starred in 2000 classic Road Trip and TV show Heroes to name a few.
.
Justin Walker – Christian
Justin graduated from Washington & Lee University with a theater degree. However, his professional acting career sadly never really took off, and he only nabbed a few other roles. He currently owns Teddy Teadle’s Grill in Rancho Mirage, Calif.
.
So there you have em folks! Hopefully you’ve learned a little more about these amazing characters and the people behind them. We sure have! Many went on to achieve some pretty amazing things which just makes seeing them in their early years in Clueless that little bit more special.

Why not celebrate this special day by kicking back, popping this 90s classic on the telly and picking up one of our exclusive Clueless T-Shirts, vests and gifts. All form only £19.99 too! Take a look….

So what are your favourite moments or characters from this iconic flick? Let us know by commenting below. :)
