We are very proud to present two of Urban Species brand new collaborations, they have designed exciting new ranges with esteemed artist Sidney Maurer and iconic publication Life Magazine. Released together these fab new Urban Species T-Shirts celebrate famous Hollywood, Sports and Music icons as well as nostalgic 90’s pop culture. I’ll give a quick run down of these brand new tees.
Girls wanted to get with him, guys wanted to be him, Johnny Depp was the epitome of cool in the 80’s and 90’s (and still is in our opinion!). This awesome tee, celebrates this icon against a jazzy 90’s background and is part of the new Life Magazine collection for Urban Species.
This great, new, vintage style tee from the Life Magazine collection for Urban Species celebrates the genius of one of America’s greatest musicians, Johnny Cash who brought us such cult classics as, I Walk The Line and Ring Of Fire.
Will Smith was where is was at in the 80’s and 90’s. Not only was he hot, cool and funny, he had a starring role in US comedy Fresh Prince Of Bel Air and a penchant for rapping alongside Jazzy Jeff. What a treat this Urban Species tee is, from their Life Magazine collection, we are loving the 90’s style design which shows Will off to a tee!
This awesome new, vintage style tee from the Life Magazine collection for Urban Species celebrates the 80’s US boy band, New Kids On The Block. If, You Got It (the right stuff) and I’ll Be Loving You (forever) get you into groove mode, this tee is a great, nostalgic way of re-living those childhood memories.
This celebrity icons range features stunning painted designs from artist Sidney Maurer. Including the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Muhammed Ali and Robert De Niro this range has classic icons to suit all tastes!
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!
