Return to the Goblin City, our new Labyrinth collection!

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…
