Buyers Picks: Festivals

As the first stages of Spring, ‘spring’ into action and we are taken aback by the sight of blue skies and that warm tingly sensation provided by the lesser spotted sun, I get to thinking about what fun things the Summer has in store. First and foremost is festival planning! So this months look is a geared around preparing for festival season and TruffleShuffle certainly has a lot to offer in this department!

I can picture myself at Festival Number 6, enjoying wonderful music, poetry and culture, all in the wonderful surroundings of Portmerion, and there WILL be sun which means I need plenty of tshirts and some groovy sunnies at hand.

Here are my hot picks for girls …

And, for the boys…

New Exclusive Retro Tees Tie Dye For!

Just about as retro nostalgia as they come! That’s right folks, Tie-dye had a major moment from the late ’60s to early ’70s, then a second coming in the ’90s, and now it’s back!

Before now the very mention of tie dye would conjure up images of 60 festivals and summer camps or a Grateful Dead tour, even then stretching to 90s where it became a challenge to see how many bright colours you could wear at once. Now it seems it’s back and perhaps a little more dignified but with much added style.

Always wanting to ride high on the latest trend wave, we just had to get to work and create some of our very own and exclusive designs that are a perfect mix of retro style and bang up to date style icon!

Available in a unisex shape, each have been lovingly dyed by hand with some of the funkiest and brightest colours going to give your style a punch of colour and some added wow factor. Check out our latest Tie Dye T-Shirts designs available for only £14.99…

Bread and Butter January 2012 – The Buyer Experience

We love Bread and Butter! Every year after Christmas when everyone else is feeling gloomy, Claire and I get all excited about the trip to Berlin where we see new and existing fashion brands showcased at the wonderful Bread And Butter trade show. It’s a great opportunity to catch up with familiar faces and meet tons of new ones too and this time we had the added bonus of our lovely colleague James’ company!

It’s an early start, heading off from Bristol, Heathrow bound, at the un-godly hour of 3am. A couple of bleary eyed hours later, we found ourselves seated ready for some top nosh breakfast at Gordon Ramsey’s Plane Food restaurant at terminal 5 (the best terminal by far). This always deserves a mention, my Eggs Florentine was a vision to behold and tasted pretty good too.

When we finally arrived in a rather nippy Berlin, we paid a visit to the trade show Premium first. This was a high-end fashion show where we picked up loads of details from potential new suppliers and brands with the aim to launch later this year. We caught up with the guys at Chaser LA and absolutely loved their new ranges, we now know whats coming in all the way up to July! Expect to see more distressing, ripped details, tie dye and fringing, perfect for this year’s 90’s trend. No pics allowed though, so you will just have to keep you ear close to the ground!

Then it was off to Bread and Butter which is housed in the magnificent (now de-funct) Templehof Airport. With all the original signs, luggage conveyor belts and check in desks intact, it really is a breathtaking venue.

Frantically weaving our way through the crowds, we got to drop by Chunk, Coloud and Worn By ‘s stands (as well as many more) where we got a sneak preview of the up-coming lines for 2012. And we can tell you, there is a lot to look forward to! We also spotted some exciting new brands here which we can’t wait to start working with this year.

And so, with throbbing feet and sack loads of catalogues we made our way back to the airport, snoozing our way back to good old Blighty.
