If you thought you saw Darth Vader or one of his stormtroopers on your way into work yesterday – fear not, you weren’t going mad!
To celebrate the launch of the Kinect Star Wars game on the on Xbox 360, Darth Vader, a bunch of Stormtroopers and R2-D2 undertook an imperial invasion of London.
There have been no reports of Vader having to use his death grip in this mornings rush hour, though judging by these commuters’ (lack of??) reaction to the Star Wars characters presence, it’s unlikely anyone would notice.
On Wednesday a few of us Trufflers travelled to London to see what Amplified have in store for us in their next collection and so we thought we would share a few of the sneaky peek pictures with you. The Amplified Preview day was held in a perfectly “Amplified” building in Hackney called the Depositories which is where Dragon’s Den used to be filmed – how exciting!
As well as some amazing new bands and great new imagery we got to see the fab new shapes and styles Amplified have been working on and we just know you are going to love them. To see us through the cold winter months there are a collection of warm and cosy sweaters for men and ladies.
Our favourite item from the day was the new ladies speckled sweater with a new Ramones print which has just been introduced and is a great flattering fit, we think it is a great winter wardrobe necessity.
Perhaps a little more suited for the spring/summer seasons are the new vest dresses featuring some of the best band designs that Amplified have to offer (although we are thinking we might get away with wearing them in the winter with some nice thick tights, warm boots and a chunky knit!)
To finish off our day we were shown the new additions to the hugely popular Ikons range, with artists such as Axl Rose (Guns N Roses), Kurt Cobain (Nirvana) and Steve Tyler (Aerosmith) now featuring we can’t wait to get this new collection on the site.
With our first, brand new Amplified delivery landing at TruffleShuffle in 4 weeks time, we hope this has given you a little insight in to what you might like to add to your Christmas lists!
There is always great excitement when a new delivery arrives at Truffle Towers and this is especially the case when a new delivery of beautiful jewellery lands in our warehouse! This week saw the arrival of the oh so pretty, sparkly and cute range from new brand Bits and Bows.
Lovingly hand-crafted in England and inspired by nostalgic trinkets, charms, treats and childhood memories, Bits and Bows jewellery offers extra special and individual pieces sure to delight you as much as it did us Shufflers!
The collection includes necklaces, bracelets, rings and hair clips so there is something for everyone. With some very realistic looking sweetie pieces you will have to careful someone doesn’t try and take a bite when you are wearing the Flump, Milk Bottle and Shrimp Charm Bracelet!
If a sweet treat is not your style then perhaps something from the London’s Calling collection would be a way to add a splash of colour to your outfit. You can choose to adorn your neck with a Black Cab, Red London Bus, Red Telephone Box or Red Postbox – which will it be?
Something for your hair perhaps, we have it all covered with this Set Of Four Love Hearts Hair Slides! Depending on your mood you can choose “BE MINE” or “KISS ME” – just be sure the right persons reads them!
A personal favourite has to be the Cinders Pearl and Charms Stacker Bracelet as it captures my love for fairy tales with amazing attention to detail with silver charms including a tiny pumpkin carriage and crown. The pearls and silver bangles help to give this gorgeous piece a more grown up feel and a way to show your appreciation for the fairy tales we grew up with!
