Hello again everyone! I’ve been super busy this month working on the new-look website, starting some exciting new collaborations and just generally trying to get through everything that's been happening in the world recently, I feel like it's been a lot.
It's been over 3 months of the Coronavirus imposed lockdown and writing this on the 3rd July, the government are just about to start the 'easing' of restrictions, starting with Hairdressers and Pubs. Now, I love a good pub visit as much as the next person but I'm more excited about being able to get a haircut; there's been many attempt with the kitchen scissors and it's not a look.
Last month I teased some exciting new collaborations, and June did not disappoint, as-well as launching the Dirty Stop Outs range (which I blogged about here) we have also seen the start of two new partnerships, firstly with Ashleigh Turnbull, owner of Womxn Up, a brand that represents every kind of woman, of every race, class and gender. Ashleigh aims to use her new platform to advocate and support LGBTQIA+ and feminist charities and as June is Pride month, we wanted to mark the occasion and celebrate with a collection of Pride T-Shirts, designed by Ashleigh and printed by us! You can see one of my faves here below and the best part is 100% of the profits will be donated to the Manchester Pride charity.
For more information about Womxn Up, head on over to the website and check out Ashleighs story and to shop the full pride collection, just click here.
For our second new collaboration of the month, we have teamed up with Mira White of Leoras Attic. Mira is a talented illustrator also based here in Sheffield and her pop-cult inspired movie illustrations made for perfect translation into some beaut T-Shirts.
My fave so far has to be this depiction of the iconic balcony scene from Baz Luhrmann's epic 90's re-make of the Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet.
If you'd love to see some more cult classics you can shop the full collection here, or head on over to Leoras Attic to bag yourself some new prints to spruce up your walls, lets be honest, we have all been staring at them for long enough now haven't we!
You may or may not have noticed that I've made a few new changes to the website, which will hopefully make it easier to shop with us. Unfortunately this means that the product range that has been ever-growing for the last 5 years has been streamlined quite a lot (it was long overdue)!
On the flip-side this also means new designs and new sections have been added, including our new 'Personalised' collection, where you can shop an array of customisable Tees, Sweaters and Accessories. Our Birth-stone Tee featuring our new metallic print below is a perfect example, the combinations are endless (almost!)!
If there is something in-particular you are looking for and you can't find it, it may have been removed from the site, but never fear, just send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what I can do for you :)
Until next month, Stay Safe and Be Kind 💖
