It’s that time of year for a wardrobe change and what better place to come than TruffleShuffle for some funky, retro beauties to see you through the Summer! We have a great selection of amazing tees and accessories which are perfect for lounging around in the sunshine, feasting out at barbeque’s in, hopping along the beach and attending glorious tea parties. Have a look at some of our new additions below for inspiration…
We love the authentic vintage look of Junk Food’s tees and this latest collection offers even more with fabulous shapes, music tees and more of those distressed prints of all our favourite retro characters.
Fydelity bags are the ultimate Summer accessory. Not only do they look fantastic, hold a load of stuff, they ALSO come with in built speakers and amplifier so you can take your favourite tunes with you everywhere you go! There are a variety of styles you could go for, such as the generously proportioned Tote bag, 90’s style barrel shaped gym bag, bum-bags, handy wallet and amazing cool bags. Just the ticket for festivals, beach parties or lounging around in the park. We have had tons of fun with these bags at Truffle HQ, they really do get very loud indeed. Just plug in your MP3 Player or Smartphone and you’re away!
Super exciting news at Truffle Towers this week! We have been in touch with the king of mullets from the wonderfully wacky 90’s kids show Fun House, none other than the phenomenal Pat Sharp!
We’ve got so many fond memories from watching Fun House when we were younger, it was always my dream to go on the show. I would have loved to run laps on the go karts, speed down the Skelter Belter, traverse the Danger Net, target the trash cans and of course meet the legendary Pat Sharp!
We are very proud to announce that we are going to be working on a few tees dedicated to Pat and his admirable and awe-inspiring blonde mullet. We are already busy cooking up some great ideas and slogans, but were also wondering if there was anything that you would love to see on a Pat Sharp T-Shirt. What are your fondest memories of Pat? Let us know, we would love to hear from you!
We love Bread and Butter! Every year after Christmas when everyone else is feeling gloomy, Claire and I get all excited about the trip to Berlin where we see new and existing fashion brands showcased at the wonderful Bread And Butter trade show. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and meet tons of new ones too and this time we had the added bonus of our lovely colleague James’ company!
It’s an early start, heading off from Bristol, Heathrow bound, at the un-godly hour of 3am. A couple of bleary eyed hours later, we found ourselves seated ready for some top nosh breakfast at Gordon Ramsey’s Plane Food restaurant at terminal 5 (the best terminal by far). This always deserves a mention, my Eggs Florentine was a vision to behold and tasted pretty good too.
When we finally arrived in a rather nippy Berlin, we paid a visit to the trade show Premium first. This was a high-end fashion show where we picked up loads of details from potential new suppliers and brands with the aim to launch later this year. We caught up with the guys at Chaser LA and absolutely loved their new ranges, we now know whats coming in all the way up to July! Expect to see more distressing, ripped details, tie dye and fringing, perfect for this year’s 90’s trend. No pics allowed though, so you will just have to keep you ear close to the ground!
Then it was off to Bread and Butter which is housed in the magnificent (now de-funct) Templehof Airport. With all the original signs, luggage conveyor belts and check in desks intact, it really is a breathtaking venue.
Frantically weaving our way through the crowds, we got to drop by Chunk, Coloud and Worn By ‘s stands (as well as many more) where we got a sneak preview of the up-coming lines for 2012. And we can tell you, there is a lot to look forward to! We also spotted some exciting new brands here which we can’t wait to start working with this year.
And so, with throbbing feet and sack loads of catalogues we made our way back to the airport, snoozing our way back to good old Blighty.
