What’s new Trufflecats?

March has been a very special month, with lots of new brands and collections being launched on the site. Just as the sun is starting to show it’s face and coming out from behind the clouds, we sure are ready to boost our tee collections in preparation for the Summer months!

Out Of Print

If you consider yourself a bookish type, avert your eyes from your gripping read and peer over your sexy specs at this fabulous new collection. Out of Print celebrates the world’s great stories through fashion. Their tees feature iconic and often out of print book covers. Some are classics, some are just curious enough to make great t-shirts, but all are striking works of art! Featuring cult titles such as Pride And Prejudice, Catch 22, The Great Gatsby, Moby Dick and Wuthering Heights. In addition to spreading the joy of reading on their fab tees, Out Of Print acknowledge that many parts of the world don’t have access to books at all, so for each product sold, one book is donated to a community in need through their partner Books For Africa. Such and delightful and heart warming mission and stunning tees too!

Fydelity

Turn on, jack in and rock out! This amazing collection of Shoulder Bags, Totes and wait for it… BUM BAGS all come with amplified speakers which connect to your smartphone or MP3 player, oh yeah, the party’s in the bag! An excellent choice for heading to the beach, picnic-ing, camping and generally carrying about for those that cannot be without their music and want to enjoy it on the move or with friends! We couldn’t resist giving these a go when they landed here at Truffle Towers and were hugely impressed with the sound quality and even more importantly, volume. Also, we are majorly excited about the return of the bum-bag this season, perfect for the 90’s trend which is set to predominate this year.

Junk Food

We have stocked Junk food for a good few years now and have seen many a great collection come and go, however this latest offering from the hip LA brand really did hit the mark! Bang on trend for styling, shapes and graphics, Junk Food really is a guilty pleasure! With Minnie Mouse and Looney Tunes revitalised in retro 90’s graphics on cropped tees and vests for the boys to show off the results of a spinach heavy diet, there really is something for everyone.

Keep those eyes peeled for even more exciting new brands and collections set to be launched every month.

What time is it? It’s O clock….

‘The coolest unisex Italian watch brand to hit the UK…’

The Italian watch that has taken Europe by storm has arrived in the UK. O clock watches are designed & manufactured in Italy & the brand already has something of a cult following in Europe.

The brilliance of O clock lies in it’s interchangeable concept. You not only build up a collection of practical, functional & aesthetically pleasing watches, the interchangeable faces & straps allows you to mix & match your look depending on your mood & your outfit. Other designs include some fabulously unique Disney designs for the adult market – original sketches of favourite characters. O clock is so much more than just a watch – it is also an object of design that is constantly pleasing to the eye. You will feel equally happy wearing this watch on the beach or in the office. The watches are extremely comfortable to wear, made from hypoallergenic silicon & come in three sizes. They can be worn loose like a bracelet or with a tighter fit.

O clock Disney collection is inspired by the most famous Disney characters. Whether you’re an adult or child you’ll love the subtle character sketches on these watches featuring Mickey or Minnie Mouse, Goofy or even the iconic Mickey silhouette.
O clock Disney comes with its own collectable tuna-tin and are still as interchangeable as the rest of the range. So Minnie can look just as at home in the red strap as she does in the white, or you can rock goofy in a slick black strap. The only limit is your creativity!!

White Minnie Mouse Disney Watch from O Clock - £34.99 Red Mickey Mouse Disney Watch from O Clock  - £34.99 Blue Goofy Disney Watch from O Clock - £34.99 Black Mickey Mouse Icon Disney Watch from O Clock - £34.99

I can’t actually remember how long I’ve been waiting for these O clock watches to arrive at Truffle towers. Being a real 80s kid I find it extremely hard to resist anything neon. Green, Yellow, Pink… Whatever it is, I love it. So when 3 neon watches come in to stock how do pick which colour to buy?? Easiest answer is I don’t, I just buy all of them… The fact that I can mix and match faces with straps adds a whole new level of creativity to simply wearing a watch! They’re amazing….

Neon Pink Watch from O Clock - £34.99 Neon Green Watch from O Clock - £34.99 Neon Yellow Watch from O Clock - £34.99

Want one? Well, you’ll have to be quick as these watches will be gone in no time at all. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist) Click here to see the full range.

Perhaps Being A Princess Isn’t All That!!!

As a huge Disney fan which has me longing to be a princess I watched the recent Royal wedding just a little bit enviously!

That was until I saw this unfortunate comparison of two real life princesses and their Disney alter egos……

While Prince William and Kate are the vision of the classic fairytale ending poor Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie have been somewhat harshly likened to the Ugly Sisters thanks to their “alternative” head gear!

While my longing has reduced (slightly) I console myself with fabulous Disney accessories fit for a princess and dream that someday my prince will come………

Here’s looking forward to the next royal knees up, the wedding of Zara Phillips to her rugby prince(?!)

I can’t wait to see what those fashion adventurous Princesses come up with to adorn their heads – will it be happily ever after?!

**Newsflash** Tinkerbell has stolen Peter Pans wardrobe.

Either Disney has decided Tinkerbell‘s attire was to ‘saucy’ or they’ve just decided to make their feminine characters more masculine.

Either way, the new and frankly unimproved uniform and image of Tinkerbell leaves a lot to be desired from the formerly cute minidress clad nymph.  The new image is just plain silly.  It’s not even that different from Peter Pan. They’ve crazily opted to ditch the cute strapless green dress, the magic wand, and very visible angel wings. And now, there’s this stupid-looking visor/hat contraption.  Disney said it wanted to give “Tink” a tomboyish look.  Um, ok……


Yes, Disney claims that it’s new Tinkerbell release out on end of October takes place in the autumn when weather is cooler, but the weather has never affected Tinkerbell couture before. It’s a cartoon character, not a weather dependent human.

What is going on????????
