This month we have been very, very busy bees! Have a look at what’s new…
Punky Pins invaded the independent fashion scene with a range of kitsch accessories in 2005. Produced and handmade in-house in their fast paced design studios, Punky Pins offers fresh, fun, cutting edge designs that can’t be found on the high street. Our new collection consists of 11 individual and quirky pieces which have a nostalgic, retro feel. Click HERE to see the full range.
The Fab Four are always a popular choice, and these four new styles are bound to hit the spot with any super-fans! The men’s styles also make a particularly cool fathers day present idea! To see all Beatles product click HERE.
We couldn’t believe the incredible response to this movie! We always thought it was pretty cool but as it’s such a quirky one, we thought we may be alone in our worship.

There’s nothing we like better than snuggling up on the sofa under a blanket with a huge bucket of salty popcorn watching old school movies when the rain is pounding down outside! Our love of all the cult classics, has fed our insatiable desire to buy as many amazing movie tees as possible. Here is a little glimpse of some of the highlights.
With Mothers Day fast approaching, it’s time to consider what gift you’re going to treat her to – and as always – TruffleShuffle have it covered! The only question you have to ask yourself is ‘What kind of Mum is she?’ – then you can leave the rest to us!
If, like mine – your mum was responsible for some disastrous home made Super Hero costumes as you were growing up, then why not show her how ‘times have changed’ by treating her to a ‘Girl Power-esque’ t-shirt or accessory. With the likes of Wonder Woman, She-ra and Supergirl – you’re bound to find something that will save the day!
With our wide range of 80’s music t-shirts – she can show off her appreciation for all her favourite bands, while rocking one of our funky t-shirts. In a variety of shapes and colours, we have something for everyone. For our full range of music t-shirts and gifts click here.

So David Bowie turned 65 last weekend, and I have to say that he is hands down my favourite David. (Sorry Hoff) With a music career that has spanned 4 decades, I defy anybody to question his legend status. He is all kinds of awesome, not only is he one of the world’s biggest musical talents – but he is an eccentric crusader for the weird and wonderful.
I mean, he guest starred in Spongebob Squarepants. Some iconic megastars may (wrongly) think they are above smartly dressed sponges and meowing snails – but not our David. He was a guest on the 2007 episode Atlantis SquarePantis, and gave the show it’s highest ever ratings. What a guy.
In 1986 he starred in Labyrinth as Jareth the Goblin King, and the fabulous gang at TruffleShuffle have got a brilliant collection of t shirts celebrating the many faces of David Bowie. So, to quote Jareth (with some creative license) ‘I ask for so little. Just fear me, love me, do as I say and buy these T-shirts…’
It’s been an exciting week here at Truffle Towers, mainly thanks to the long awaited launch of our brand new, official and exclusive range of Labyrinth T-shirts. It’s something we’ve wanted to be able to represent on the site for what feels like years so getting the opportunity to work closely with the amazing Jim Henson Company to create our very own tribute range has been totally awesome in every way. We’ve been tweaking and perfecting this collection over the last few months so it’s been such a great feeling to finally unleash the tees to all you TruffleShufflers and we are so happy with the fantastic response they’ve all received!
As one of the designers of the range, it was a great experience to return to the fantastical world of the Goblin City and really get under the skin of one of the all-time ultimate 80’s classics! We started with David Bowie and his genius turn as the Goblin King Jareth and we were of course inspired by his outrageous fashion (those skin tight leggings made a particularly big impression…) and the ultra catchy song from the film (Dance Magic Dance!). After playing with lots of ideas, we plumped for a really cool flyer style design for what would clearly be the coolest club night in the world! Check it out below….
We also had to feature Ludo, the bumbling best friend we wish we all had, and of course that cute cheeky worm who was always around to say “Ello!”
Although we knew you guys loved the worm as much as we did, even we were surprised by just how much – this design pretty much sold out after 24 hours on the site and has even been snapped up by the fabulous Una Healy from The Saturdays who even tweeted a pic of her wearing it!
We also had to pay homage to the films strangest pairing, with the slightly twisted love interest between Sarah (the heroine of the film) and Jareth the Goblin King. For this tee we just had to use imagery from the stunning and surreal ballroom dance scene, as that was one of the key points (and my favourite moment) from the whole film. Here’s the video for anyone who needs a recap…
And here are the men’s and ladies designs…
The final tee added this week was the ultra classic Labyrinth movie poster, done in a great vintage distressed style and perfect for anyone who had the same problem as me in trying to choose which one to go for! A real classic, I wore mine for an evening in the pub last week and had 4 people come up to me to show their appreciation so it’s a real talking point! Don’t know about you but just seeing this movie poster makes me want to see the film again…..
Arriving stylishly late to the party is Hoggle, Sarah’s devious guide to the maze, who ultimately comes good at the end of the film. This tee is anything but horrible though and will be available to order on the website very soon so keep your eyes peeled!
With so many interesting characters and magical moments it was a real pleasure to put together this collection. We can already tell you guys are enjoying the tees and we hope it helps to bring back many great memories of the magical goblin city. We would love to hear which tees you guys like the most and what are your favourite characters and moments from the film? Get in touch fellow Labyrinth fans…
